A successful decade helps to shape the future

Businesses on Brackmills are being asked to help shape the estate by identifying priorities and key projects they would like tackled in the next five years.

Over the next six weeks employers are being urged to complete detailed surveys, which Brackmills Business Improvement District (BID) will then use to draft a five-year business plan for the estate.

This business plan, based solely on the business feedback, will then be voted on next March – when businesses are encouraged to vote YES for a third five-year term as a BID.

Sara Homer, BID Executive Chair for Brackmills, said: “What a difference a decade makes. Back in 2009 we asked businesses to vote for BID status and tell us what mattered most to them.

“We took this feedback, ran projects, invested funding and the estate has since transformed from a crime-ridden, unkempt estate to one that is safe, secure, vibrant and a location of choice for businesses big and small.

“It’s now time for businesses to have their say again and shape the next five years, so we can make plans for the estate’s future and ensure Brackmills remains one of the UK’s premier logistics and transport hubs.”
