Business Support and Feedback

An independent survey was carried out in late-2016, which asked town centre businesses about creating a BID in central Banbury.  Responses were received from over 100 businesses, almost three-quarters of whom supported a project of this type being taken forward.

The survey responses suggested that improvement plans for Banbury, all of which would be in addition to any existing activities, should focus upon:

  • Improvements to key empty shop units
  • Lobbying for car parking discount schemes
  • Marketing & promotional campaigns
  • Street markets & festivals
  • Events & entertainment
  • Business cost reductions in areas such as energy, insurance or waste disposal
  • Public transport concessionary rates for business staff

Any other ideas are being encouraged as part of the extensive ongoing consultation with businesses and a wide range of views will be taken forwards to create a Business Plan for Banbury.

We also urge any business to contact us at any stage of the BID process to register their views, ask any questions or request a business visit.
