The BID will generate around £100,000 each year for 5 years through a levy of 1.25% on the business rate, with additional money coming through match funding and grants.That money will all be spent in Ulverston for the benefit of the town, independent of any local authority influence.
The priorities for action identified by consulting with businesses include car parking, rejuvenating the town centre, and marketing & promoting
Ulverston to visitors and encouraging people in the surrounding area to buy local products and services.
We will also be working with local employers to help with their presentation of Ulverston as a good place to come to live and work.
