Through Enterprising Penrith the BID focuses on improving the professional approach of Penrith through training, communal initiatives, and filling empty shops with new businesses or services. Consultations with businesses in the town centre identified the need to fill empty shops with new businesses or services as their third highest priority going forward in 2017 (66% high priority).
This project will be delivered in three parts:
1. Facilitate and encourage an increase in investment in the town centre including assistance, as appropriate, to encourage new enterprise and use of vacant premises within the BID area.
2. Encourage take up of collective purchasing schemes such as the Recycling initiative and other schemes that could reduce the costs of business in the town centre.
3. Encourage a professional approach to business in the town centre through a rolling programme of relevant training courses.
