LOVEDROGHEDA BID group to host public information meeting

Front Page

Members of the LOVEDROGHEDA Working Group who are striving to have Drogheda recognised as a Business Improvement District (from left): Geoff Fitzpatrick, Niall Kierans, Declan Kierans, John Shanahan, Jackie Jolliffe, Valerie Sherlock and Ursula Clarke.

The LOVEDROGHEDA Business Improvement District (BID) Working Group will be holding a Town Hall meeting on Wednesday next, 24 July, at 6.30pm in the Westcourt Hotel. All are welcome.

The group carried out a public perception survey in May which sought people’s views on Drogheda’s night life, retail offering, safety, parking, access and what they thought could be improved.

Altogether 942 members of the public completed the survey. The results will be announced at the meeting but a member of the group has referred to it as a “warts and all assessment of our town in May 2019."

The group will also be providing updates on the following:

  • Progress to date on the Business Improvement District proposal, with updates on the plebiscite dates and how rate payers can vote. The working group will answer any questions rate payers may have regarding the BID proposal and process.
  • Call for volunteers to assist during the BID campaign for a 10 week period. Volunteers will be required to help out in engaging with all 1,556 rate payers in the proposed BID area.
  • Update on Drogheda’s Purple Flag application – the gold standard for evening and night time economy. Assessors will be in Drogheda on Friday 9 August to assess our night time economy and if it meets the Purple Flag Standard.

If you are interested in the future development of Drogheda, run a business or want to help out, please come along.
