We are delighted to have the support of both West Suffolk Council and Haverhill Town Council.
Cllr Susan Glossop, Cabinet member for Growth, said: “I am delighted that West Suffolk Council is funding the development of a possible business improvement district (BID) for Haverhill.
“Healthy town centres are a council priority and a BID would provide a mechanism for marketing all that Haverhill’s lively high street has to offer.
“As well as our wider support, through things like street cleaning, regeneration, markets and events, the council would become a substantial levy payer through the business rates it pays on its car parks.
“I recommend the initiative to local businesses and hope they will feel able to lend their support.”
David Roach, Haverhill town, district and county councillor, said: “I endorse anything that is designed to support businesses in our town.
“This could open up a lot of possibilities for businesses. It will mean a lot of hard work but it’s really important for businesses to have a voice. I look forward to working with Heart of Haverhill to back the BID.”
