BID Projects Looking after business

Have your say

YOU SAID “Lots goes on in the city which we don’t know about until it’s too late we would like to have more say about how our city is run and managed.”

Exeter BID will deliver:

  • The BID Welcome Team will be a first point of contact on the streets.
  • Strength in numbers - 640 businesses will have real influence and clout.


Cutting your costs

YOU SAID “Overheads for small businesses are too high, it makes considering voting for a BID more difficult.”

Exeter BID will deliver:

  • Bulk purchase insurance scheme. Many BIDs across the UK have negotiated bulk purchase deals with insurance providers to secure discounts for BID members. Exeter BID would look to do the same for BID voters in the city.
  • Waste cardboard initiative - the BID will look to build a scheme to collect waste cardboard for recycling to save businesses commercial waste costs.
  • Energy saving and cost reduction scheme – the BID will work with established agents in the business of cost saving reductions for energy bills.
