North Somerset councillor Chris Blades has been appointed to Clevedon Business Improvement District (BID).

Cllr Blades, North Somerset Council’s representative for Clevedon, will sit on the steering group of the BID, which was formed in the summer and hopes to boost business and footfall in the town.

The BID is working on a number of projects, including the installation of information kiosks in the town centre and a brown tourism sign on the M5.

The decision was agreed by the council at its meeting on September 25 at Weston Town Hall.

The authority’s leader, Nigel Ashton, told councillors he is confident the BID will have a positive impact on business in Clevedon.
