What Retail BID Will Do

Retail BID’s third term is one of influence and support, running for five years from 2017 to 2022.

We will develop the Birmingham City Centre Experience to support our world-class retail offer, creating new opportunities for leisure, evening economy and cultural businesses to thrive.

We will make it easier for people to discover opportunities through strong promotion of businesses and experiences in Birmingham city centre, online, in print and on street.

We will support and encourage creative, engaging events, and continue to promote the BID area, generating footfall.

We will work in partnership with Birmingham City Council and other service providers on the maintenance and management of the city centre, and monitor the delivery of support and enforcement services.

We will continue to give members a voice on the management and maintenance of the city centre, and provide one-to-one personal support to Retail BID members.

We will lead the reimagination of New Street and further public realm improvements across the Retail BID area.

We will think and act beyond our boundary, working to support Birmingham city centre as a destination, and sustain and grow the already substantial employment base.

We will work closely with Birmingham City Council, Highways England and transport providers to ensure Birmingham remains open for business.
