Lancing Business Park became a Business Improvement District (BID) in September 2008 to support businesses based on the park and provide a professional environment for businesses to thrive. In July 2018, BID Levy Payers on the park voted in favour of renewing the BID for a third, five-year term. The current BID Term commenced on 1st September 2018 with the following key projects: Safe, Access, Clean and Connect. 

The current BID Term is due to expire on 31st August 2023 and therefore it is essential for the BID (LBP) to consult with businesses on the park, to review BID services and determine future business needs.

An essential element of the BID process is for LBP to collate business feedback to help inform the business plan for the 2023 to 2028 LBP BID. 

LBP designed the 2022/2023 LBP BID Survey to enable businesses to let us know what we are doing well and what we need to work on, to enable the next BID Term to meet business needs.

LBP would like to thank the 90 respondents who kindly completed this survey, as sharing their thoughts has helped steer the BID in the right direction.

Your feedback is much appreciated!                      

The BID Survey is now closed. To view the outcome of the survey please click here
