Find Your Local Business Improvement District

A Business Improvement District (BID) is a geographical location in which the local businesses have voted to invest together to improve their area.

Business ratepayers in the BID usually pay a levy, which helps to fund and develop projects that benefit local businesses. They run a range of services, such as:

  • Marketing the local area.
  • Training courses.
  • Business directories.
  • Networking events.
  • Projects to improve security and public spaces.
  • Environmental projects.
  • Discounts for business owners.
  • Employment and recruitment support.
  • Insights and updates about local business issues.

The Mayor of London has an interactive map where you can find out more about your local BID.
