Hanging Baskets – Expressions of Interest Sought
We are leading on the return of hanging baskets throughout the city centre and we need to see what levels of interest there are in having them on your frontages. Please take time to look at the letter and let us know what your requirements might be so that we can plan for a bloomin’ great scheme!

Mobile Street Trading Conditions – Consultation
If you feel that the presence of mobile street traders is an issue in the city centre, some changes are being put forward and your views would be welcomed. The consultation document outlines some of the ideas proposed as well as what they existing conditions are. This is a great opportunity to tighten the regulations and the BID team have already put forward their views which aim to reduce the problems that the street traders cause local businesses. Click here for a copy of the existing trading conditions.
It outlines all of the key event dates run by the BID including the fashion, health and well-being inspired event which has been confirmed for 8th to 11th September as well as others throughout the year and is a great accompaniment to an office or staff room wall.
