Carmarthenshire County Council (CCC)
The means were commissioned in April 2014 by CCC to establish a BID in Llanelli Town Centre. This was a consequence of funding made available by the Welsh Government to establish 10 BIDs in Town Centres across Wales.
The first phase involved a feasibility study to scope out the key issues and explore whether businesses would support a BID in principle. Following a positive outcome, the means took Llanelli through the campaign and ballot phase which successfully established the Ymlaen Llanelli BID in December 2015, with an overwhelming majority of 78%. Ymlaen Llanelli will start is work on April 1st 2016 and generate £500,000 worth of spending in the town centre over the next 5 years.
The programme will tackle the following key priorities:
Percentage in favour- 79%
Percentage of aggregate rateable value in favour- 65%
