BIDS - a winning result for all
Business Improvement Districts - BIDS - originated in North America and are designed to improve the economic wellbeing of central business districts.
The structure of a BID provides self-funding for a business association which enables CBD business sectors to engage with their local authority on strategic issues. This provides financial and resource gains for the local authority and also rapid economic results for businesses.
Strategic or action planning for a BID identifies key issues which will take the local economy forward and show how the objectives will be met. Contentious issues for CBD's such as car parking, opening hours, business capacity, relationships are just some of the matters that will be addressed.
