Bristol City Centre BID

Taking care of business

We're in the process of designing and developing a new Bristol City Centre BID website, which will be launched in early December 2017.


On the 6th July 2017, the Bristol City Centre BID was successful at ballot, with 72.6% of businesses voting Yes by number and 82.1% by Rateable Value; the turnout was 39.7%. The Bristol City Centre BID subsequently began its five-year term on Wednesday 1st November 2017.

The BID exists solely to introduce significant improvements for the benefit of its levy payers. Our partnership approach will develop a strong and successful environment, enabling all organisations within the BID area to thrive.
