Ripon BID survey on proposed Cathedral visitor centre

Ripon BID, under our remit to act as a conduit between our member businesses and Ripon stakeholders, produced a survey to garner the views of BID members on the proposed Cathedral visitor centre.

The survey results indicate that most businesses who responded were in support or neutral to the idea of the cathedral development. The BID as a conduit cannot comment, however we feel that we can support through providing further comparison analysis and ensuring future updates/communication regarding the development is available on our website.  We have also requested a closer working relationship with those involved to keep the channels of conversation open and therefore keep all businesses in Ripon updated.

The results of the survey can be found  here

Ripon Bid already  has many projects aimed to increase footfall around the city.  We are currently working on the following:

  • Retail Action Group and Totally Locally
  • New tourist information and repair of the current noticeboards and finger posts
  • Ripon Apprenticeship & Training Hub
  • Seasonal window competitions, trails and entertainment
