Business Improvement District for Lowestoft
An initial event with targeted invites led to the formation of a group, headed by the Suffolk Chamber of Commerce.
This became the Pre-BID Working Group and they applied to EERD for funding towards the costs of the formation of their group, they also gained cash and in-kind support from Lowestoft Town Centre Management Partnership, Waveney District Council and the Chamber itself.
With a logo designed by a local company graphic artist working with part of the steering group, Lowestoft Vision was born and raring to go!
The first informal round of consultations with all business ratepayers was held in the summer of 2011. The results of which can be downloaded.
