our mission

Mandated in 2017, Bristol City Centre Business Improvement District (BID) is a collaboration of 763 levy payers working together to make Bristol an even better place for everyone.  

It exists solely to introduce significant improvements for the benefit of levy payers. Its aim is to ensure Bristol city centre is increasingly known for its safe, attractive and welcoming look and feel by all those who work, study, live and spend leisure time in the city.
