The Broadmead shopping area has been a Business Improvement District (BID) area since 2005. The third, and current BID, started in October 2013 and will run until October 2018. The BID projects focus primarily on marketing the Bristol Shopping Quarter but also on providing an enhanced level of cleansing and maintenance.
The first Broadmead BID unlocked the resources to transform paving, street scene, street furniture, lighting and signage. Standards of cleansing and maintenance have been raised to the highest level and award-winning marketing campaigns have been made possible.
Our BID aims to maximise the appeal and advantages of shopping at the heart of Bristol. It is shaped in response to the current tough trading environment and the impact of internet shopping on city centre retailing.
In early 2018 the BID team will consult with retailers ahead of a future renewal in the autumn.
If you would like to discuss any aspect of our BID, then please get in touch with the Broadmead BID team on (0117) 925 7053.
“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.”
