Newquay BID’s current five-year term (2016-2021) is due to cease on the 31st March 2021 and will be heading into renewing its proposal later this year, with a ballot being held throughout November and early December 2020. Following a successful ballot, this would see Newquay BID continue its operations and run for an additional five-year term from 1st April 2021 until 31st March 2026.
Newquay BID is consulting with all levy payers to help shape, influence and inform the new business plan, which is due to be created and published in October 2020 ahead of the postal vote issued by Cornwall Council in November.
We want to hear from Newquay BID levy paying businesses about their priorities for our town, any possible projects or new ideas and where they think their levy payments could be best targeted to generate the greatest value for the continued success of Newquay for the next five years.
We understand how busy you all may be during this challenging economic time. COVID19 has affected the way in which we all operate and will continue to change over the coming months. The survey has been designed to take no longer than 10 minutes and have lots of opportunities for you to expand on comments and provide us with vital feedback. We have had to adapt the way we would normally consult throughout a renewal period with the focus now being heavily reliant on direct emails, social media, phone calls, postal correspondence, and local media campaigns. If you have not heard from us via email or post to date, please do send over your updated contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org
Please see the below link to Newquay BIDs Consultation Survey. This feedback will help form the basis for the new five year term of BID’s business plan which will be made available to your business prior to the ballot.

Baselines – Services provided by statutory organisations within Newquay that have a correlation to the projects that the BID will deliver have been documented. The purpose of this it to ensure that Newquay BID is adding value to current service provision and supporting businesses rather than replacing or duplicating existing services. An agreement in principle, subject to a successful ‘yes’ vote, has been reached with Cornwall Council, Devon and Cornwall Police and Newquay Town Council that these baselines will be reviewed each year. Cornwall Council issues will be reported through the localism team at Cornwall Council as and when they occur. To view these baselines, please see below:
