Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) have a significant role to play in regeneration of high streets and towns across England. Published in April 2022, British BIDs’ spring report states that BIDs contribute approximately £145 million each year to their communities.

Many BIDs deliver a range of projects which help to regenerate the local area, from funding ambassadors to act as a visible and welcoming presence on city streets, to undertaking projects which help to keep the BID area clean and safe.
