Our core focus over the next 5 years
We will use a mix of digital and traditional marketing platforms to raise the profile of the town centre, challenge perceptions and showcase everything it has to offer to the resident population as well as to the wider area, driving footfall and sales in the process.
Specialist Place Marketing
Dedicated visitor website
Revitalise Redditch will build on already successful events that take place in the town as well as developing a collection of new events. All will have the aim of driving more visitors into the town and creating positive experiences..
Enhanced Christmas Lights Switch On
A town centre events calendar
The Christmas Tree Trail
Support for community events
We know our town centre, like every other across the country, is going through a period of transition. Revitalise Redditch is determined to support businesses to make the most of the opportunities and
challenges that technology offers.
Tailored business support
A strong voice for businesses
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:
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
Assistance in dealing with council, police and other public bodies
Revitalise Redditch is the proposed BID for Redditch town centre.
