Making Bristol even better

Bristol City Centre Business Improvement District (BID) is a not-for-profit organisation working to improve the city centre for everyone to enjoy.


Bristol together. Safely reopening our city.

We have launched a city-wide marketing campaign to support local businesses as they safely reopen.



Thanks to the investment and involvement from our levy payers, we’re creating a better Bristol: one that’s more caring, more welcoming, safer, cleaner, wonderfully diverse and better promoted.

Our guiding principles are to offer strong and effective governance, to have clear accountability, to give our levy payers value for money and to be responsive to our levy payer’s needs.



Our objectives

The City Centre BID will focus on these objectives.

  • Improve Safety

    Reduce crime and anti-social behaviour to improve city safety by day and at night.

  • Promote Success

    Promote the BID area as a safe and pleasant place to work, live and play.

  • Act in the best interest of levy payers

    Be a single point of contact, represent levy payers’ views, encourage networking and deliver waste and recycling schemes.

  • Improve the 'welcome and feel'

    Create a cleaner, greener city with improved wayfinding, parking and Ambassadors.
