We consulted with businesses in the BID area and they have asked that we focus on the following four projects:
Clean & welcoming – We will improve the cleansing standards to encourage more shoppers to visit.
Addressing anti-social issues/safety – We know that anti-social behaviour is on the rise nationally. We will work with the police and Bristol City Council to tackle this and we will work with businesses to reduce retail crime.
Marketing & promotion – We understand that marketing Broadmead, The Galleries, and Cabot Circus as ‘one great destination’ is best for everyone and we will continue to do this.
Business support – We understand that together, we are stronger – the BID will continue to lobby on your behalf and use our expertise to support businesses.
Money to provide enhanced levels of cleansing
Resources to address rough sleeping and anti-social issues
Funds for marketing and promotion of the BID area
The Bristol Shopping Quarter website
Events in the BID area
The BID team (Jo, Sophie, and Viv)
Free training courses
The BID mystery shopping programme
“As manager of an independent retailer on the edge of the BID area, I really appreciate the work the BID team does to help promote all its businesses, especially events like the annual Easter trail that encourage shoppers to explore the whole area.”
