Okehampton BID workshops

The creation of an Okehampton Business Improvement District (BID) will be the topic of discussion at two days of free workshops for businesspeople in the town later this month.

The workshops will discuss the potential for an Okehampton BID, looking at how it could support the town and its activities.

A BID, which is a business-led structure, is a defined area in which all business rate payers pay into a funding pot to develop projects that will benefit businesses in the local area. The businesses choose the projects and decide how the money is spent in the town.

The times and venues for the BID workshops are as follows:

Monday 29 January

  • 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Okehampton Town Hall Council Chamber
  • 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. Okehampton Business Centre
