What are BIDs?

BIDs are an opportunity for business to come together, decide what additional improvements they want to make to their location, how they are going to manage and deliver those improvements, and what they are prepared to pay for them. As a business, you choose which projects the BID fund is spent on.

Learn more about BIDs by visiting the About BIDs page.

FOR Cardiff City Centre

Over it’s 5 year term FOR Cardiff will raise over £1.5m revenue each year to spend on the things that businesses (retail, leisure, tourism, office and commercial) voted for in the business plan.

Who else is doing this?

Many of the UK’s major cities have BID’s, and since September 2004 when the legislation was introduced, there have been over 250 successful BIDs in the UK, which over the next 5 years will bring in £300 million of funding.
