Frequently asked questions
A Business Improvement District (BID) is a defined geographical area within which businesses and organisations work together to create a plan and co-invest into additional projects and services which benefit their area.
All businesses within the BID area contribute via a levy. If you are unsure whether your business falls within the BID boundary, please contact us.
