Gavin O’Brien, Co-Director of Clearhead, who chairs the Luton BID Board said:
“The last five years have demonstrated that by working together we can make a difference. We have some fantastic businesses and organisations in the town centre which are very much part of Luton and should be part of the celebration and everything good about Luton as a whole. If Luton town centre is to become the true centre of Luton with a vibrant economy and a place which attracts visitors, feels safe and is perceived to be a great place to live, work and do business, then we need to be brave and radical and work together collectively to ensure that we all benefit in the future.”
The Luton BID Plan 2020-2025
The 2020-2025 vision: ‘Support business growth and investment in the town centre and build pride, loyalty and positive perceptions of Luton as a whole.’
The BID recognises that doing more of the same as it did in the first term will not be enough to change the fortunes of town centre businesses. It needs to exert influence on initiatives which will create a radical change to the built environment of the town centre, re-balance the business mix and ensure that the town works effectively from a visitor, residents and business perspective.
The BID will act as a catalyst for businesses and organisations to come together and play a key role in this new and exciting era in the life of this town. There are four key objectives.
