Groundwork South - Appointed Management Organisation for the GBP BID 2

Following a successful renewal ballot the GBP BID 2 commenced in January 2020 and will run until December 2024. Working in partnership with GBP businesses, Groundwork bring its expertise to help overcome the problems facing the Business Park, proposed schemes and initiatives include:

  • Access and egress options
  • Off street car parking
  • Sustainable transport options
  • Signage and way finding
  • Connections between businesses
  • Making the trading environment more safe and secure.

    Groundwork adds value to this project by acting as an independent facilitator, supporting all the businesses in achieving their common goals. To help achieve this, the BID project seeks to raise funds over the next five years from local agencies and stakeholders to continue the great work started during the first BID term.

    Each business, with a rateable value above £10,000, contributes an additional 1.5% of their rateable value towards the funding of the BID project. This generates around £80,250 a year (2020-2024).
