Stockton Business Improvement District (BID) is ran by businesses for businesses who together aim to revitalise and regenerate Stockton for everyone who works, lives or visits the town centre.
We represent approximately 400 businesses – from retail and entertainment to food and drink with health, beauty, creative and professional services in between.
We are a not-for-profit company funded by our business members who pay a levy each year. Each BID in the UK has a five-year term, at which point they will ask their members once again to vote and renew for a further five years. As a BID we were incorporated in October 2016 so will operate this term until October 2021. Our next ballot will be held in or around May 2021.
Creating a sense of place to encourage investment, attract businesses and visitors to the town centre, we want to extend a warm welcome to everyone and ensure that Stockton continues to thrive.
