Business Improvement Districts (BID)
A Business Improvement District (BID) is a business led and business funded scheme to improve a defined commercial area, such as a town centre or industrial estate through additional services or new initiatives.
We are committed to encouraging and supporting BIDs and are currently undertaking feasibility studies for possible BIDs in other parts of the borough.
There are four BIDS in the borough.
