Rassau and Tafarnaubach Business Survey
Thank you in advance for taking the time to complete this survey.

Revive & Thrive Ltd, commissioned by Blaenau Gwent County Borough Council, have compiled these questions to better understand the issues facing businesses on the Rassau and Tafarnaubach Industrial Estates and to begin to put together a picture of what you, the business community, see as being the priorities for the future.

All responses will remain confidential and will form part of an overall feasibility study for a possible Business Improvement District for the estates.

The sole purpose for collecting your email address is to keep you informed as to the progress of this study. If you do not wish to receive any further communications, please email: m.powell@reviveandthrive.co.uk and we will remove your email address from our responses.

Your responses to these questions will help to shape the future of the two industrial estates.

Prior to completing this survey, did you know what BIDs (business improvement districts) are and what they do?
There are around 300 BIDs across the country, they raise sums of money from £100,000 upwards annually which is all reinvested in the areas they represent. They are adopted following ballots of businesses in those areas who each contribute a small amount (usually 1%-1.5% of their rateable value) into the shared pot. A BID on the Rassau and Tafarnaubach Industrial Estates would begin to address some of the issues covered in this survey and would allow solutions to be implemented to improve the estates. Based on this, do you think a BID for Rassau and Tafarnaubach Industrial Estates should be tested at ballot?
If a BID for Rassau and Tafarnaubach Industrial Estates were to be implemented and it generated approximately £120,000 per year, what three projects do you think would make the biggest difference to your business/the estates?
