Recruiting for a Dorking resident to join BID Board

The Business Improvement District board is made up of local businesses (National, Independent, Night time Economy, Office, Leisure and Tourism) along side representatives from Mole Valley District Council. There is also a resident’s observer position on our Board which we are recruiting for now! This position is designed to provide a resident’s perspective to the board when considering projects designed to benefit the town and drive its footfall. It should ensure there is a connection between what the BID does for the businesses in Dorking within its business plan and ensure it has a positive effect from a resident’s perspective.
