Working to Improve our City
Worcester BID Renewal 2020-2025

 

Worcester BID is now in the final year of its second 5-year BID term. We are delighted to have built such strong relationships and delivered so many successful projects that achieved to make a great difference to our levy paying businesses, customers, partners and the wider Worcester city centre environment.

From impactful marketing campaigns, The Worc Social magazine, fashion, lifestyle, motoring, food and drink and events, City Sessions, footfall reports, planters, Christmas lights and reduced parking to the CityNet radio scheme, City Ambassadors, improved signage, masterclasses and training, gull sacks, lobbying and cost savings projects – there has been a huge variety of opportunities for businesses from all sectors to get involved with to get the most out of the BID to support their individual business.

Thanks to you over the past two BID terms we have seen over £4million worth of investment spent locally in our businesses and in Worcester to make it such an amazing place to shop, work, eat and go out.

What’s Next?

There is plenty more to be done and we would love to continue working with and for you in the next five years. We appreciate that businesses’ needs and the city centre environment are changing over time, so it is critical that we receive your feedback on projects and services you would like us to deliver for you in the next five years. These can be existing projects to be continued and completely new projects that would make a difference to your business, for your customers and the city centre, and boost the profile of Worcester.

We have already received a lot of valuable feedback from businesses as part of the Mid Term Review, our individual business visits and City Sessions. There have also been some initial planning sessions with the BID team and BID Board Directors, who are representing you as the businesses and their individual sectors and geographical areas.

The next step is our BID3 Consultation Document and Survey, where you can voice your views on what you would like to see delivered in the next five years.

Make sure to have your say and either complete a paper copy of the survey included in the BID3 Consultation Document or online via Survey Monkey. All BID levy paying businesses will be sent a hard copy by post w/c 8th April. Our team will visit your business from w/c 15th April to collect your survey. Alternatively, you can return your completed survey by post to Worcester BID, 4 Copenhagen Street, Worcester, WR1 2EY by Thursday 9th May 2019. You can also contact us to arrange for collection on 01905 731612 or info@worcesterbid.com.

Remember, this is your BID and you as the businesses are the ones who steer the future projects and what we deliver for you. Thank you for your support and we look forward to hearing from you!
