Government Visit

The Falmouth Town Team hosted a visit on Wednesday 15TH October, by a senior team from the Department of Communities and Local Government (DCLG) who came down to Cornwall to review the active BID scene that exists here. There are seven Business Improvement Districts now operating in towns and areas of Cornwall, representing and supporting over 3,500 businesses - the highest number of BIDS in any one local authority area in the UK, outside of London. There are over 180 BIDs in the UK.

The visit is part of a UK-wide tour of BID towns and cities and will inform a report to be submitted to Government at a later date, on the UK high street and BIDs, highlighting areas of good practice as well as challenges to growth.

The Town Team for Falmouth (Falmouth Business Improvement District working together with Falmouth Town Management) has been operational for five years and is the only such public-private partnership in Cornwall. The Town Team is the management resource for Falmouth, delivering the town’s major festivals, destination marketing campaigns, public realm improvements, business training and more.


The visit follows on from a week in which Southend BID visited the Town Team to look at the Falmouth partnership model and contact made by Belfast City Council who are also looking at the Town Team partnership idea.
