Your Hereford Business Improvement District

In early 2015 local businesses and property owners voted to establish a Business Improvement District (BID) for the City of Hereford with the principle aim of delivering investment and improvement to the commercial area.

The purpose of this website is to inform and support our 480 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 are the in the process of being, delivered:


Hanging Baskets & Window Boxes Being Installed April/May 2019


Total Engaged Followers (April 2019)


Members of DISC Daytime (April 2019)
