Welcome to BEDMINSTER TOWN TEAM & BID


OUR VISION
Exploit and eventually explode the gap between art, advertising and entertainment, high street retailing and real estate development’ drawing on some of the lessons of Shoreditch which has reinvented itself as the UK government’s vision for the ‘largest concentration of creativity, media and technology in Europe’.




BUSINESS WORKING WITH THE COMMUNITY

A Business Improvement District was campaigned for and successfully won by an overall majority of 85% of businesses in favour in April 2013. This gives the Town Team certainty of funding over the next five years (the term of the BID). For more details of the BID operation please see the BID pages.

However the Town Team recognise that collaborative working with other other groups that make up the diverse interests in high street areas and collaboration between them that will lead to the most meaningful improvements - see diagram below. 

The  Town Team is further supported by two themed ‘Action Groups’: 

The Town Team and BID are governed by a board drawn primarily from local businesses but also local councillors and observers from key council departments, the police and other public agencies.
