Love Hoddesdon

With the support of the Council, local retailers have established the 'Love Hoddesdon' initiative to increase awareness about Hoddesdon town centre as a shopping destination.

The group also helps to organise extra town centre events such as funfairs, specialist markets and fun runs.

Love Hoddesdon's Business Improvement District bid

The Love Hoddesdon team organised a ballot to vote on whether to create a Business Improvement District (BID) in Hoddesdon.
If the result supported the creation of a BID, it would establish itself as a not-for-profit company with Directors drawn from a range of business interests. It has also drawn up a five year business plan which outlines a range of initiatives to enhance the town for the benefit of businesses, shoppers and visitors.
The ballot was held from Friday 1 September, 2017 to Monday 16 October 2017.
The result of the ballot is shown below.
