Segensworth Business Forum (SBF) represents the interests, concerns and issues of all businesses on the Segensworth Industrial Estates.
A single and coordinated voice, we work on behalf of everyone, lobbying for better services and increased funding to make our Estates a better place to work. SBF has been here for your business since July 2005.
Whether your company is big or small, being a member of the SBF means we work to make Segensworth better, together. We're here to make issues heard and make improvements that suit your business needs. To learn about how we work for you, every day, read more here.
From May 2007 we have been a Business Improvement District (BID) enabling the forum to implement a range of specific projects funded through a levy on the business rates. Read more about BID.
We are conducting a short survey (max 3 minutes), and your response would be much appreciated.
A Business Improvement District enables groups of businesses to join together and commission improvement projects. Covering the four Segensworth Estates – north, south, east and west – your BID is managed by Segensworth Business Forum Ltd. The Segensworth BID generates an income through a levy of 1p in the pound of rateable value for each business ratepayer. Since 2007 SBF has delivered significant improvements that have enhanced the trading environment for our business community. In May 2012 businesses on the estate voted to continue with an increased mandate.
SBF is here to bring genuine value to Segensworth Estates and our business communities. We've been with you since 2005, and thanks to your votes in July 2012 with an increased mandate, you've given us 5 more years to make even more of a difference.
What's our mission? To transform the Segensworth Business Estates into Hampshire's premier industrial estate. A place customers love to visit and employees are happy to work, where crime is low and where the business community is exactly that: a community.
