The Banbury BID Business Plan sets out a series of proposed projects based on 5 core themes.
Here’s are some of those we are working on in 2020.
“Increase footfall and enhance the appearance of our town centre”
We have teamed up with Kärcher Center Banbury, to spruce up our town centre. The Banbury Clean project aims to make visitors feel safe and confident to return to Banbury following the recent lockdown. An experienced Kärcher team is using their hot water pressure washer to clean the central locations of Banbury town centre.
The project began in Summer 2020 with the cleanup of the Market Square but will move onto other key areas. Read more>>>
BETTER FOR BUSINESSES
“Providing a range of support projects for contributing BID members”
The coronavirus situation brought about new legislation and safety guidance for businesses to adhere to. We wanted to make reopening as hassle-free as possible by putting together reopening starter kits.
Containing a variety of items such as social distancing floor stickers, posters and hand sanitiser, these kits were given away for free to BID members. Read more>>>
“Promoting Banbury and building customer loyalty through new channels”
To support our town centre businesses during lockdown we partnered with the multi-award-winning digital platform ShopAppy.com. The aim was to help people at home to shop local online and support our Banbury businesses.
We’re covering the cost of the platform for one year for our BID members and are working with a local taxi firm to provide a delivery solution. Read more>>>
