The first five-year term for Bid Camborne – Camborne Can Do – has been judged a success. After positive feedback from levy payers, the BID Camborne board has agreed to proceed to a full ballot and ask members if they would like a second term – Camborne Can Do More.
If the vote is yes, Camborne businesses can look forward to another five years of support and action to boost trade and the profile of the town still further. This would run from March 2017 until February 2022.
The process of reaching the decision to have a ballot began in January this year when BID directors were asked to give their views on BID Camborne’s success. In March, 19 levy payers were interviewed and using the feedback from both groups a proposal for Can Do More 2017-2022 was published and sent to all voters.
In June, three discussion groups were held, led by BID Chairman, George Le Hunte and BID Manager, Mel Martin. Members were also encouraged to complete a survey about BID Camborne and its future.
62% of the information, views and opinions gathered suggested there is a high chance of members voting to keep BID status for the second term and enabling the ballot to proceed. The vote will run throughout November and close on 1 December.
