Join The BID

Business Improvement Districts are formed after a ballot takes place where any eligible BID Member will be given an opportunity to vote and decide whether they wish for the BID to be set up. If that ballot ends up with a yes vote then all eligible businesses will automatically become BID Members and be eligible for the BID levy charge for the 5 year duration of the BID term.

Join us.jpg

To be an eligible BID Member a business must fullfill two criteria.

1. Be responsible for a property that pays business rates within the BID area

2. The property as assessed by the VOA must have a rateable value above £15k.

If you have a property within the BID area but with a rateable value less than £15k you will shortly be welcome to join the RTW Together team and access all its benefits for a flat annual fee of £120.

We are also considering a possible voluntary scheme for local businesses that fall outside the BID area.

If you would be interested in learning more please contact the BID team
