Voted for by local businesses in October 2018, the One Maidstone Business Improvement District is funded by town centre traders, to serve town centre traders. We carry out services such as Ambassador patrols seven days a week, and a radio security network, as well as live monitoring the town centre’s CCTV cameras, stepping in to prevent it becoming a record-only unmanned system. We have provided the Christmas lights installation and switch on since 2019, and undertake regular deep cleans, above those which fall to the standard duties of Maidstone Borough Council. We promote businesses with a variety of marketing campaigns, and produce a quarterly town centre magazine, in print and online at www.onemaidstone.com/magazine
