What is a Business Improvement District (BID)? 

A Business Improvement District is a Statutory Body, created by a business community, that seeks to bring positive change to a described area – typically a town or city.

There are approximately 240 established BIDs in the UK.
Working to an agreed plan, following a ballot of the business community in the described area of the BID, appointed representatives from businesses seek to achieve the objectives of the plan, typically enhanced promotion, improved visitor experience and attracting more investment into the area.

A key activity of a BID is to establish closer working with key partners such as the local council, police authority and other recognised agencies that can deliver beneficial change to the area. In this way the needs of the local business community can be better understood and acted upon.

A BID lasts for a maximum of five years at which point it will need to be renewed.
During the life of St Peters Quarter BID 2011-2016 it generated £1 million levy and £3.7 million additional funding with businesses paying typically between 24p and £1.20 per day.
