SHOPKEEPERS in Morecambe will be asked to back the BID to support the town’s retail future.
The town’s traders will be invited to vote on creating a Business Improvement District (BID) in the resort to generate a pot of money to spend on enhancing the town’s shopping sector.
A BID is a defined geographical area within a town or city where traders pay a small amount extra on their business rates.
Lancaster City Council has put aside £40,000 for preparatory work on the BID to take place this year.
