Renewal for our next term

Our first five-year term is nearly over and as we prepare for renewal, we are asking our businesses to have your say on what you’d like to see from the BID in the next five years.

A new gift card for the city centre

We are now taking sign-ups from city centre businesses to be part of our Love Bristol Gift Card, aiming to support businesses by keeping spend local.

MARLBOROUGH HILL STEPS MAKEOVER

We are thrilled to see weeks of hard work come together to add a little joy to this key pedestrian walkway.

Love Our Levy Payers

To welcome our levy payers back to the office we’re hosting a range of exclusive events to help you rediscover Bristol.

Adding up to a better Bristol

Bristol City Centre Business Improvement District (BID) is a not-for-profit organisation working to make Bristol an even better place for those who work, study, live and spend leisure time in the city.

TAP for Bristol

In September 2019, Bristol City Centre BID launched TAP for Bristol in partnership with local homeless support charity Caring in Bristol. Our aim is to make Bristol the city that solves homelessness.

WHAT WE DO

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.
