Business Improvement Districts BIDs

A BID is formed through a ballot among businesses within a defined geographic area. Since 2005, over 160 UK BIDs have been formed, mainly in town and city centres. In Mary Portas' report to government on the state of Britain’s High Streets, she identified BIDs as key players in the transformation of those places in which they operate. In their first terms, both Hainault and Ilford BIDs delivered over £3 million of investment into their respective areas improving safety, promotion and creating more welcoming and vibrant environments.
