A partnership between a local authority and the local business community that develops and takes forward projects and services that benefit the trading environment.
BIDs are an investment in the local trading environment through the provision of added value services.
A BID sits businesses and local authorities around the table as equal partners working toward common goals. Identifying what issues and drivers are important to various stakeholders must be done through
consultation, engagement and securing their participation in the BID development process.
BIDs support the long-term sustainability of town and city centres. This support is needed because town and city centres have been under increasing pressure since the development of out of town shopping and the over-provision of retail space which resulted in boom and bust cycles of the 1980s.
BIDs enable town and city centres to approach the management of the trading environment / public space in a proactive and planned way allowing them to gain and retain competitive advantage over the (often high quality) managed environment in shopping centres.
