What we do

Our focus is the ongoing commercial success of Bideford Town Centre and the wider Bideford Bay area. Every 12 - 15 months the Executive review our 5 year strategic plan to evaluate how we are performing. We want the strategy to evolve; it needs to reflect both the economic climate and local priorities.
