Coulsdon Business Improvement District
19/05/2016 09:08:00


I am hosting a meeting to discuss the creation of a Business Improvement District (BID) for Coulsdon and would like to invite you to attend if you are a local resident or business owner in the area.

I believe that Coulsdon needs a proper voice for businesses to ensure action is taken on issues such as the parking fiasco and to help local traders.
A BID is a business-led body funded by a modest (2%) business rates levy to improve trading conditions in a defined area. A BID was successfully launched in Purley in 2015. You can find out more information about it here. They are now working on better parking, street cleaning, signage, town centre marketing and other initiatives.
The upcoming meeting, where I will be joined by business representatives, resident association representatives, Purley BID organisers, local councillors and council officers is happening on the 19th May at 7pm in the Coulsdon Community Centre, Barrie Close, CR5 3BE.  Please do let me know by emailing me at if you would like to attend.
