Our core focus over the next 5 years

A Business Improvement District (BID) is a geographical area in which the local businesses have voted to invest together, to improve their local trading environment. A BID will provide additional services, identified by the local businesses, using a variety of consultation methods, to enhance the performance of businesses in the district. BIDs are business-led organisations. There are over 300  in the UK.


A BID charge (known as a levy), is used only within the BID area, unlike business rates which are paid into and redistributed, by Government. It brings additional services and not replacement services. A BID company is a not-for-profit initiative.


Typical benefits of a BID could include:


  • Increased footfall

  • Improved staff retention

  • Enhanced marketing strategy for promotion of the town

  • Businesses decide and direct what they want for the BID area

  • BID levy money is only used within BID area

  • Giving the businesses in the BID area a coherent and united voice

  • Long term investment

  • Economic growth

  • Assistance in dealing with council, police and other public bodies


Revitalise Redditch is the proposed BID for Redditch town centre.
