It's Your BID - Get Involved!

17th January 2017

Lancaster BID is reaching out to city centre businesses to encourage them to get more actively involved. All levy paying businesses are entitled to become members of the BID which enables you to have a real say in what our priorities should be and how the levy income should be spent. Membership comes at no cost and ensures a vote at any open meetings and the Annual General Meeting (AGM) where board members are elected.

Members can also choose to become more actively involved in the BID through putting themselves forward to join the Management Board or one of the sub groups (currently Events, Promotions & Christmas, Improvements and Finance). Together with the Management Board, the sub groups are responsible for ensuring the BID delivers on its commitment to make Lancaster city centre a better place to invest, work, do business and visit.

As well as organising high profile events and marketing campaigns the BID also currently funds additional street cleansing and a BID Ambassador to be our presence on the streets and highlight any issues needing attention. Even if you are not a BID member you can always get in touch to let us know about any issues affecting you or grot spots in need of a clean and we'll do what we can to help.

Lancaster BID has achieved a lot for the city over the past 4 years and we need your support to continue to make an even bigger impact moving forwards. To find out more about BID, enquire about becoming a member or express an interest in joining one of our working groups please get in touch on 01524 590650 or You can also come along to meet the team and current Board members at our Open Meeting on Tuesday 7th March.

We look forward to hearing from you soon.
