There are now over 200 Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) operating across the UK. The majority are town centre BIDs but there are over 20 Industrial BIDs operating, while sector specific Tourism BIDs have been established in some areas. British BIDs Nationwide Survey 2014 reported that as of April 2014, the combined levy income from BIDs was £65,500,000 with BIDs securing further income of £130,300,000. This is additional funding that is targeted at improvements to BID areas. The Government is supportive of BIDs and wants to see many more created to help deliver improvements and give businesses a stronger voice in shaping their local area.
This Guidance was produced with help from the Association of Town and City Management. It is intended to be a high level starter guide. Although some of the guidance here is generic to all BIDs, the Guidance is to help individuals, local partnerships, and local authorities in England understand the process necessary to deliver a successful town centre BID.
