Hello and welcome to our website, where we will keep you up to date with the developments relating to the Main Street BID and its Surrounds.
Commercial districts cannot be complacent in the current climate in terms of competition. We need to collaborate and work together to invest in our place. A BID will allow us to enhance our trading environment and make a real difference, attracting more shoppers and visitors and in the long term, businesses wanting to invest. Doing nothing is not an option and with government backing and potential investment, the time feels right to capitalise on what we do well and be part of tackling the challenges that are ahead of us.
Business Improvement Districts are an
effective way in which businesses can take
control and improve their trading environment.
- BID’s are funded and controlled directly by the businesses that pay for them. As a business, you choose which projects the BID fund is spent on.
- In the UK, since 2004 when Government passed the Business Improvement Legislation, there have been over 300 successful BIDs developed and there are many more across Europe and worldwide
