• In 2004 a local group of business people formed an effective network to alert each other to suspicious activity and incidents in the area.

    In 2009 the group formed a company, Witham Industrial Watch Ltd, and were successful in achieving Business Improvement District (BID) status for Witham's industrial estates from 2009 to 2014.

    In 2014 businesses on the estates voted overwhelmingly in favour of another five year BID term, from 2014-2019, operated by Witham Industrial Watch.

    Witham Industrial Watch employ estate managers, install ANPR and CCTV, erect signage at the estate entrances, arrange trade fairs and carry out winter salting/gritting of the estate roads to allow businesses to continue to operate in snowy weather. They also try to assist with parking and traffic flow issues on the estates.

    BID 2014-2019 will see the continuation of the great improvements already in place, plus some new, exciting projects as described in the BID 2014-2019 Proposal document.
