ROYAL TUNBRIDGE WELLS

BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT

The Business Improvement District is a defined area of Royal Tunbridge Wells town centre. Businesses within this footprint contribute an annual levy based on the rateable value of the premises. RTW Together manages these funds to carry out improvement activities, marketing and events to improve trading conditions within the town centre.

A board of voluntary Directors oversee the work of the BID team. The board is comprised of business representatives who fairly represent various sectors across the town centre.

The BID was formed in 2019 after a yes! vote from local businesses and stands to run until 2024.
