WPCC New Chair Backing The BID

Mark Blunden WPCC

8:11am 4th March 2013


The new President of Weymouth and Portland Chamber of Commerce has been speaking to Wessex FM about plans to make Weymouth a Business Improvement District.

Businesses are due to be balloted in May.

Town centre firms would pay a levy which would then be spent on projects to boost Weymouth Town Centre.

Chamber President Mark Blunden says it would be a good source of funding.


Weymouth and Portland Borough Council will consider the business plan being put forward by the BID steering group tomorrow (Tuesday 5 March).
