Congratulations to BID Clifton Village
I am delighted to let you know that following a successful ballot, BID Clifton Village has secured a further five year tenure commencing November 2017. 64% of the voting businesses said YES and similarly we achieved 76% of the rateable value.
Thank you for your support and feedback throughout the process, this result guarantees an income of £425,000 over the next five years and means BID Clifton Village will be able to continue funding the Christmas Lights, which have become an annual attraction over the festive period.
We will also be able to continue organising high profile events throughout the next five years for the benefit of all businesses, residents and visitors. Recent memorable events being the Tour of Britain coming to the village and CliftonFest. Behind the scenes we are already preparing a major event for Spring/Summer 2018 that will celebrate Clifton Village and it’s iconic attractions. More info early 2018!
As a BID we face multiple challenges with transport links and the Residents Parking Scheme being key concerns for many of us. This is something we will continue to debate with Bristol City Council to ensure we receive the best possible outcome. We also remain committed to our environment and we will continue to support Bristol in Bloom, do all we can to reduce waste and rubbish concerns and ensure Clifton Village remains a vibrant business area. Working together is how we can protect the area’s unique quality and diversity.
