Coventry Business Improvement District (BID) is a partnership between the businesses located within the ring road of Coventry city centre.
The aim of the BID is to promote, develop and boost the city centre to make it a great place to work and visit.
Projects are varied and fall under the categories – cleansing, crime reduction, greening and marketing which was identified by the businesses in the city centre as their key priorities.
To ensure the BID is delivering results for its contributors, a vote takes place every five years to decide whether the scheme should continue.
Each business has one vote and in order for the project to be renewed there must be a clear majority by both the number of votes received and the total aggregate rateable value of the votes.
This year is an important year as businesses will be able to cast their votes once again to decide if the scheme should carry on.
Coventry BID is currently in its third term and it has been extremely proactive in ‘Driving the future’ of Coventry city centre.
The BID team will be working tirelessly this year to make sure that it provides an exception service for all the companies it represents.
