Chippenham’s Business Improvement District appoints a new manager
Cherish Chippenham, the not-for-profit company formed to mange the town’s Business Improvement District, has appointed a manager.
Carolyn Brownell will work from an office at Emery Gate, close to the town centre shopping area.
Originally from Warminster, Carolyn was assistant BID manager at Solihull prior to taking up her new role.
BIDs are an arrangement whereby businesses come together and decide which improvements they feel could be made in their town or city centre, and also how they will implement these improvements and what it will cost them.
They are funded through a levy on business rates, and it is thought that Chippenham’s BID could bring in £200,000 each year to be spent on town centre improvements.
