Geographically, we are one of the largest Business Improvement Districts in the UK, covering virtually the entire town centre.
Croydon BID represents the interests of around 570 organisations, including well-known brands and businesses in the retail, office, leisure, hospitality and public sectors. In November 2016, Croydon businesses voted overwhelmingly in favour of Croydon BID continuing for a third five year term from April 1st, 2017 to March 31st, 2022.
What are Business Improvement Districts?
Business Improvement Districts like ours are business-led initiatives set up in defined areas to add value and improve the local trading environment. They are democratically elected organisations that can only be created when a majority of businesses in the area vote in favour of supporting them – both by number of votes and by aggregate rateable value.
There are currently over 250 BIDs in the UK. For more information visit British BIDs
