Who We Are

The Blue Street Art

We are a Business Improvement District

Our activities are focused on offering services to help reduce costs and enabling a better stake in the future of the local trading environment by representing the local business community through a unified voice.

Additionally we aim to play a significant role in helping to improve the look and feel of the area, raising the area profile to encourage further investment, positive perceptions and improvements.

Our activities are overseen by a board of local business owners to deliver services which must be in addition to those provided by the Council. This is set out in a binding baseline agreement.

Governance of a BID is ultimately regulated by the Business Improvement District (BID) Regulations (2004) and at a local level by an Operating Agreement with the Council.
