A Strong Business Voice

A Strong Business Voice

The BID is a private sector-led initiative driven by the needs of city centre businesses. It will form a strong voice for businesses and influence decision makers on their behalf. It will collectively represent businesses and seek to tackle and address the challenges they face.
