Welcome to the Bath BID Web Site
It is now well over one year since the Bath BID came into force in April 2011 and in the space of 12 months we have already achieved remarkable progress. There are now over 620 businesses paying into the BID and we have managed to secure the engagement of a great many businesses in the wider community. However, there is still work to be done to ensure that all businesses covered by the BID understand and appreciate what the BID is, what its aims are, and how to extract maximum value from it.
One of the central remits of the Bath BID is to deliver better active asset management and control of the environment, building on the basic services delivered by the council. An ongoing programme of focused management tacticsis resulting in even better, safer, cleaner and more attractive city centre. In turn this is attracting more visitors and businesses to the benefit all BID levy payers and the city as a whole.
Key to the success of Bath as a leisure, business and shopping destination is effective promotion of the city's offering. It is also important to deliver an ongoing programme of quality events and activities which serve to attract people. Working closely with stakeholders, the BID has already been instrumental in delivering a programme of successful promotions.
The third focus of the Bath BID is to put in place initiatives which result in direct savings for levy payers, as well as social and environmental savings for the cityas a whole. Business waste is one area where this clearly applies. As a busy city centre business and retail environment, there are savings which can be made based on the concept of 'economies of scale'.
