AIMS & OBJECTIVES
The Clevedon BID project aims to attract more people to Clevedon’s town centre, Hill and Seafront shopping and leisure areas. The BID will also explore how to make Clevedon a better location for office based businesses. How can this benefit you and your business?
In 2016 and 2017 Clevedon businesses were consulted on the idea of a Business Improvement District (BID) for the town. Throughout feedback has been very positive and now the final stages of the BID developoment are being explored in order to commence a BID for the town centre, Hill shopping area and waterfront.
The BID is working with Triangle Traders by supporting the launch of a Clevedon Loyalty Card which will enable users to gain discounts from numerous independent shops, restaurants, cafes etc throughout the town. For more information click here.
A BID is formed following consultation and a ballot in which businesses vote on a BID Proposal or business plan for the area.
If the ballot is successful, it is then managed and operated by a BID Company – a non-profit company run by and for its members – and is funded through the BID levy, typically based on 2% of a businesses’ rateable value.

A successful BID can have quite an impact on a town and its businesses. Watch to find out how the Truro BID has breathed new life into the town:
