BUSINESSES and organisations across a town have been urged to get involved in a new scheme.

Colne has pushed forward plans to raise their own funds to strengthen the town’s economy and become a Business Improvement District (BID).

A survey has been circulated to give people an opportunity to shape the BID and highlight what kind of initiatives they’d like to see to boost activity and trading.

So far, 60 questionnaires have been completed and the council hopes many more will follow suit.
