Dear Walton BID businesses,
The Walton BID Task Group were incredibly grateful to get the enthusiastic backing of businesses to establish a BID at the ballot announced on the 13th March.
With our high streets and businesses under increasing pressure due to the COVID-19 emergency the Walton BID has decided to pause and delay the launch of the business improvement district.
Following the YES vote the BID Regulations allow up to a year to commence the BID so we will keep the launch date under review over the next few months.
Businesses are going to require all the sort of support a BID may provide when the time comes but for now we need to deal with the immediate challenges.
There are a range of measures that have been announced to try and ease the burden for businesses and we will endeavour to keep you updated on this.
