Ballot papers are rolling in for Keighley BID. More and more businesses are using their vote to decide whether Keighley should embrace the benefits of a Business Improvement District to improve the trading environment of the town.

Feedback so far from businesses spoken to has been extremely positive with many enthusing about the potential benefits to them, their staff and customers.

The success of other BIDs locally and across the country proves that they make a difference whether it be reducing costs on utility bills (in some cases by as much as £65,000), filling empty premises or promoting businesses and improving the look of the town -.

Examples from elsewhere in the country include:-

“Significant cost savings have been identified”

“The property had stood empty for over eight years and had fallen into a state of disrepair”

With just over a week to go now is the time to ensure that all ballot papers are returned to make certain of the best turnout and guarantee the benefits of the BID are brought to fruition.
