The Town Centre BID has a simple underlying aim – to increase footfall and help you boost your profits.
In May 2012, proposals to establish the Bournemouth Town Centre Business Improvement District (BID) were approved, with 83% of businesses subsequently voting ‘YES’.
Now in the 3rd year of its five year term, the Bournemouth Town Centre BID is a not for profit company with a board of directors made up of representatives of the levy paying businesses. Primarily funded by the 585 businesses within the BID area, the initiative will invest over £3 million in raising the profile of the town centre, increasing footfall and ultimately bringing your business more customers.
On top of these levy contributions, an additional 30% is being raised through voluntary contributions, sponsorship and matched funding for specific projects.
Every penny is being invested into making Bournemouth Town Centre a better place for visitors, locals and businesses alike.
The Bournemouth Town Centre BID brings you:
- Five years of sustained marketing, promotion and events
- A friendly and welcoming team of town Rangers
- New maps and signage to help customers find your business
- Lower business costs
- Better profits
- The power to decide and direct what you want for the area
