The last few weeks have been very exciting as we work up our plans to get the BID projects underway. We must ensure that businesses see a return on investment and to help us do this we have set up a number of BID Sub Committees to help scrutinise potential projects and make sure they're right for Cardiff businesses. Many of these groups have already met and have made recommendations for the BID Board of Directors.
We are delighted to announce that the Street Ambassadors will be starting work on 10th April, we will have new hanging baskets and planters in the BID area in May, funded additional taxi marshals for the Wales vs. Ireland game and are looking at a trial to implement them at weekends in Churchill Way. We are also committed to pursuing Purple Flag, an accreditation scheme for the evening and night time economy to ensure an enjoyable and safe night out. Following extensive feedback we have also scoped the work required to deliver additional cleaning of the BID area and hope to appoint a contractor shortly. Finally, we've worked in partnership with BT to launch the Superfast Broadband pilot project for Castle Quarter.
We are working hard on multiple projects to help all the sectors and sizes of businesses that Cardiff BID represents, so keep an eye on our website and social media for updates on what we're working on and how you can get involved.
