Business Improvement Districts (BIDs)
A BID is a not for profit business-led and business funded body formed to improve a defined commercial area and is a beneficial way of bringing business communities together. BIDs allow the business community to act together to improve their operating environment, attract additional investment and provide a unique opportunity to take ownership of the management of their area in partnership with the public sector.
Sutton’s BIDs’ objectives closely align with the Borough’s economic strategic objectives of growth and enterprise, inward investment and business retention. As well managed, governed and transparent not for profit bodies, each of Sutton’s BIDs are key partners in the Borough’s future ambitions, Sutton 2031, including a new Local Plan, the Sutton Town Centre Masterplan and our strategic industrial locations.
