Baseline Statements

The Borough Council is of course a major stakeholder in the quality of the environment and a major stakeholder in the tourism industry through its provision of street cleaning, gardens, car parks, beach cleaning; as a landlord and as a planning authority. The Borough Council also supports an in house tourism team to support this important industry.

Prior to the launch of the BID the Borough Council supplied the BID Company with a series of Baseline Statements Whilst most of these SLAs cover discretional services (services that the Council has no legal duty to provide) these agreements set out the Borough Council’s current level of activity that supports the visitor economy.
