Bath & North East Somerset
The Initiative in B&NES concentrates on strategic issues, in particular building up close working relationships with key local authority representatives and their officers.
As part of the wider Initiative, which covers the whole of the West of England and beyond into Gloucestershire and Swindon, we have valuable links with National Government, MP’s, the South West Regional Development Agency, the Government Office for the South West, the West of England Partnership, the Learning and Skills Council, Avon and Somerset Constabulary and the Health Authorities.
We were instrumental in forming the public / private partnership with the Bath and North East Somerset Council to create Future Bath Plus, a company which oversees the coherent development of the three important strands of Tourism, Culture and City Centre Management.
One of the first positive outcomes was the raising of funding which allowed the employment of a City Centre Manager, the beginning of a process which has now led to the formation of a successful Business Improvement District.
The Initiative has played a part in delivering a series of successes, working in partnership with a range of other organisationsMore
