BID

Gadbrook Park BID 2 officially commenced on the 1st November 2014, after the positive ‘yes' vote achieved over the summer of 2014 saw the vision to secure a consecutive Business Improvement District for the next five years become successful and the hopes for a further 5 years of investment worth over £1 million become a reality.

With a 68% turnout, a figure well above the national average of 40%, it was clear that the desire amongst resident businesses to continue the good work and expand on everything that had been achieved in the past five years was exceptionally strong. This was further demonstrated by the fact that BID 2 was voted in with a resounding majority of 96% by number and 98% by rateable value. This excellent result demonstrates the value resident businesses have placed on the services and projects delivered by the Gadbrook Park BID, with these percentages representing some of the highest BID voting stats in the entire country.

The succession of the BID will now ensure that Gadbrook Park can continue to be an exceptional environment to work and trade in for both employees and businesses alike.

Groundwork Cheshire will continue to manage the BID for the duration of the next 5 years, delivering the essential services and projects that will continue to aid all companies on the park to develop and thrive.

This further investment provided by BID 2 will also allow for the on-going landscape maintenance and improvement works to continue, all essential in ensuring Gadbrook Park sustains its current high quality image. In addition, a new 24/7 CCTV project will be commissioned to provide Business Park wide coverage of all public open space to further enhance security across Gadbrook Park.  Further image enhancing projects are also in the pipeline, with a programme of physical landscape and street furniture improvements planned to be undertaken in the grounds over the next five years.

The continuation in to BID 2 will now ensure that the companies on Gadbrook Park can look forward to the sustained delivery of the essential projects and services that the BID provides and enjoy the investment that will see Gadbrook Park will develop even further as one of the best premier locations to trade and conduct business in the North West.

Mike Roberts – Chair of Gadbrook Park BID 2 commented "It is excellent that the businesses on Gadbrook Park have truly embraced the BID, as is evident by the remarkable voting stats. BID 2 will mean we can all continue to benefit from the essential services the BID delivers and see the park improve even further as a result."

Jane Hough – BID Project Manager at Groundwork Cheshire commented "I am absolutely delighted that Gadbrook Park has been successful in securing BID 2 and that Groundwork can continue to work with the companies on the Business Park to develop a brighter future. We have lots of exciting projects planned going forward over the next five years and we will look forward to carrying on the good work that everyone has achieved."

Mike Jones – Leader of Cheshire West and Chester Council commented "It is absolutely fantastic to see the businesses on Gadbrook Park taking control and creating a future that is in their own hands. The Council will be delighted to support all companies on the park with regards to the improvement of any opportunities that will boost both trading and employment at Gadbrook."
