Client: 
Neath Port Talbot Borough Council and Viva Port Talbot BID Board
Assignment: 

Feasibility, campaign, ballot, setup and management of Viva Port Talbot Business Improvement District (BID).

Timescale: 
2018 - present
Project Description: 

Viva Port Talbot BID began operating in April 2020 following a successful ballot in November 2019, in which 78% of ballots cast were in favour of establishing the BID. 

In the feasibility stage, four key areas of improvement were identified to form the basis of Viva Port Talbot’s vision: promoting, supporting, creating, securing. BID Projects will be aimed at meeting the following pledges: 

• Attracting people to the town through an events programme
• Incentivising people to shop locally with a loyalty scheme
• Encouraging and supporting new business to start trading successfully
• Strengthening the voice of businesses on matters that affect the town centre
• Tackling anti-social behavior and increasing town centre safety
• Creating a more accessible town centre with parking offers

The means managed the ballot campaign and company setup, and currently manage Viva Port Talbot’s operation two days a week.
