Once established BIDs are 100% business led, 100% business managed and 100% business controlled
During the BID development stages a new BID Steering Group made up of local businesses and stakeholders will be formed to make key decisions and champion the BID.
Becoming a member of the BID Steering Group is open to all businesses with a shared interest in the future prosperity of Staines, and will be made up of a mixture of local business representatives across all sectors and areas of the town, with the support and assistance of Spelthorne Borough Council and Regen Management BID Consultancy.
The BID Steering Group is the formal body made up of individuals from businesses within Staines-upon-Thames Area (the proposed BID area) and is responsible for promoting and developing the BID through consultation with all businesses and the production of project proposals upon which businesses will vote in November 2016.
The BID Steering Group recognise the benefits of all businesses working together and are the local champions driving the BID development forward.
Pending a successful ballot the Staines-upon-Thames BID will be incorporated as a Not for Profit, Limited by Guarantee Company. Businesses will be invited to join the new BID Board and the Board will manage all aspects of the BID and will ensure that all projects in the business plan go ahead.
