What is a BID?
A Business Improvement District (BID) is a geographical area in which the local businesses have voted to invest together to improve their local trading environment.
BIDs provide additional or improved services, identified by the local businesses, to enhance the performance of businesses in the district. This could include extra marketing, safety, cleaning or environmental measures.
BIDs are business-led organisations. They are funded by a mandatory levy, added to the business rate, on all eligible businesses after a successful ballot.
