Your Hereford Business Improvement District

In 2019 local businesses voted a resounding yes by 82% of the ballot for a 2nd Business Improvement District that would run from 2020-2025 with the core objective of delivering projects and investment in the city centre. The first Business Improvement District ran for the years 2015-2020.

The purpose of this website is to inform and support our 500 levy paying members, who through the Hereford Business Improvement District (Hereford BID), contribute towards creating a brighter, better managed and more attractive City – one in which shoppers are drawn to as a destination so that we take more money and make more money.

Our Five Year Plan

Through surveys, one to one meetings, open days and group events we listened and noted your ideas to enable the City to be prosperous. In response to these suggestions we developed a range of exciting projects and initiatives that fall into five delivery areas, and are currently being, or have been delivered. If you would like to see the Business Plan for BID2 you can view this HERE.
