Creating safe public spaces where visitors and consumers feel confident spending their time is a priority for our towns and cities. The Protect Duty codifies this and puts requirements on local organisations and businesses that operate public spaces.
So, what are the priorities now for BIDs in creating safe and vibrant centres?
New behaviour patterns post-covid and recovering demand across towns, cities and the tourism sector has posed new challenges and tensions for BIDs and their levy payers to address. The BID Foundation has heard evidence of these challenges across all business types, as Chair of the High Streets Task Force Sector Leaders Group.
Join an expert panel from law enforcement, business and the BID sector to explore these issues and get practical advice. This session is particularly relevant for senior operations staff.
