The BID will now focus on delivering it's core priorities which can be found in their business plan here.

Gloucester BID has drawn up a comprehensive plan to improve the City Centre, Docks and Quays area. The BID Company will deliver an ambitious programme of improvements that will help make Gloucester a safe, attractive place to do business, shop, visit, study and invest. Building on investment to date in the regeneration of the City, the five-year programme will include measures to improve safety and security, improve the cleanliness and attractiveness of the City and increase marketing of the City and expand the events programme. The BID will also support businesses in the BID area to make cost savings through group purchasing of services, improving their profitability and creating jobs, and act as the ‘voice’ for those businesses to work with the City Council and public authorities to drive forward the regeneration of the City.  The development of the BID was supported by the team at Marketing Gloucester.
