The Town Centre BID
The Bournemouth Town Centre BID represents and supports more than 700 levy paying businesses and promotes Bournemouth as a safe, secure, attractive, clean, welcoming and vibrant place to spend time.
The Bournemouth Town Centre BID was first established in 2012, received a second mandate in 2017 and began a new five-year term in July 2022 following the support of levy payers in the ballot in April 2022.
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 levy-payers, the BID has invested more than £6m into the town centre in its first ten years and plans to invest a further £3m between 2022 and 2027.
The BID raises additional funding 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, residents, and all sectors of the business community.
