Support Your BID

Willow Lane Trading estate

Willow Lane Estate requires your support to continue the BID’s improvements and investment in the area. The BID’s current term will end in June 2019. The BID must be renewed by a vote of local businesses to continue supplying the projects and services that have kept the area connected, represented, accessible and safe since 2009.

Vote yes in March 2019 to ensure you do not lose:
• Extensive CCTV cameras and monitoring
• ANPR (automatic number plate recognition) cameras
• Police LiaisonWillow Lane Police Team
• Faster broadband
• Business website
• Lobbying and networking
• Parking improvements
• Estate signage
Estate Signage
• Air quality monitoring
• Environmental audits and reporting of fly tipping
• A dedicated BID Coordinator (2 days/week) and business board



In 2009, Willow Trading Estate businesses voted to become one of the first industrial Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in the UK. Businesses voted overwhelmingly to renew the BID in 2014 for a second term to continue its important work in keeping the estate safe and secure, accessible, attractive and well managed.

Our strength lies in our active businesses and other partners, who support the Board in driving continuous improvements and positive change on the estate.

We are now inviting businesses to VOTE YES to continue the BID for a third term.
We have achieved so much in the past decade. The estate is free from major crime, well signed and well represented. We have a strong lobbying voice with the Council and other partners. However, there is much more to do and, without your support, all the BID’s services will stop and the improvements will be lost.
We have heard from many of you about your priorities for the area over the next five years and have incorporated these in our proposals. We hope now to convert your enthusiasm and support into a further five years of investment for Willow Trading Estate.
Please do not hesitate to contact us if you want to discuss any aspect of our proposals in more detail.
Thank you for your support.

Vote yes for all of this and to gain even more
