Meet the Board

The Board consists of local business representatives who the BID appoints as Directors and who have voting powers. It is a balanced representation of business sectors and sizes to ensure all interests of our diverse community are served.

The Board nominates at least one Chairperson each year at the Annual General Meeting (AGM). The Board is also assisted by invited Observers (no voting powers) who represent the Local Authority and other relevant organisations and Steering Groups who work with the Executive Team to deliver the business plan. They are made up of local business community representatives, stakeholders and are chaired by a Board Member.
