The FOBRA Business Support Committee was formed at the end of 2020 to address the challenges our business community in and around Bath is facing in the wake of the pandemic and challenges posed by technological innovation, online shopping and reduced tourism. Chaired by Kari of Somerset Place and supported by Nicholas Tobin, Mark O'Sullivan, Kirstie Rowlandson and Emilio Pimentel-Reid, the committee meets regularly to address recent developments.
The committee liaises with other stakeholders in the greater Bath business community, including BANES council and the Bath BID. We are currently seeking a closer relationship with the council in particular as conversations unfold around the future of Bath city centre.
We also regularly canvass our residents for their views on the high street and business development in the areas where they live, work and shop. We welcome discussion with local business owners and are always open to conversations about what businesses need to thrive. This committee is committed to creating a vibrant, attractive, prosperous business environment throughout our community.
The committee has put together a questionnaire aimed at residents to gather their views on the direction Bath's business community should head in this new era. Please complete it and return to Kari at email@example.com
