Morecambe businesses and the Lancaster District Chamber of Commerce both recognise that central Morecambe is in need of improvement. Having taken on board the overriding concerns of the local business community, the Morecambe Business Improvement District (BID) believes that 2015 can be the year that businesses take control and begin the process of building Morecambe into the dynamic and prosperous town it can be.
Businesses in central Morecambe were invited to join the Morecambe BID at their campaign launch on Wednesday 20th May at the Midland Hotel in Morecambe, giving them the opportunity to meet the BID steering group, learn more about Business Improvement Districts, and hear about successful active BIDs around the UK.
The Morecambe BID has been in consultation with local businesses to find out how they would like to see central Morecambe improved. The results of the surveys and one-to-one discussions were fed back to the business community at the campaign launch, where attendees were greatly encouraged to join in the conversation.
Business Improvement Districts are business funded and business led initiatives designed to bring real and measurable improvements to town centres. Businesses have the first and final say as to how the BID money is spent, giving businesses the ability to transform their community for the better.
The Morecambe BID campaign launch was another step towards ensuring businesses' hopes and concerns for central Morecambe were heard.
