Derby solicitor Beardmore appointed chairman of Cathedral Quarter BID
A DERBY solicitor has been appointed as the new board chairman of the Cathedral Quarter Business Improvement District..
Ian Beardmore, senior partner at law firm Flint Bishop, in St Michael’s Lane, takes on the role after firms in the area recently voted in favour of continuing BID status for a second five-year period.
BID status gives businesses in the area more control over improvements made in the Cathedral Quarter to enhance the visitor experience and increase footfall.
The Cathedral Quarter board, which is made up of representatives of local businesses and statutory partners, provides strategic direction and governance of the BID.

Mr Beardmore, who has been involved in the BID since its inception in 2007, said: “As a Derbyshire person born and bred and having spent the majority of my working life in Derby, I’m extremely proud of the Cathedral Quarter, which is a great place to work and to visit.
“I’m convinced that the BID has been a major factor in helping businesses to not only survive but develop in this difficult economic climate.
“It has galvanised people to work together and has given us a strong voice to tackle issues that we collectively face.
“I’m confident that the business plan we have in place is robust and achievable and will enable us to build on the firm foundations that have already been laid, which can only be good news for all of the businesses within the Cathedral Quarter district.”
