Nottingham BID launches new five year plan to build a better Nottingham

The Nottingham Business Improvement District (BID) has launched its business plan outlining how it will continue to deliver support and success for businesses in Nottingham for the period of 2021-2025.

The business plan, which launches ahead of the crucial ballot period opening on Friday 18 September 2020, focuses on four key strategic areas that have already seen great success in recent years – those being Promoted City, Managed City, Working City and Independent City.

Through innovative and creative projects, initiatives and activities, Nottingham BID will be at the forefront of promoting the recovery for the city after the coronavirus pandemic. This will include ensuring Nottingham is a city of experiences and excitement for the local community and beyond, such as the hugely successful Light Night, The Magnificent Spiegeltent and The Cask Ale Trails.

The BID will also build upon its work in ensuring a safe and welcoming city centre environment. This will include continued work on projects and services such as the Street Ambassadors, Street Pastors, Best Bar None, Purple Flag scheme and Grot Spot Cleansing.

Of utmost importance in the coming months – and beyond – will be the city’s office sector. The BID has outlined a commitment to working in the heart of Nottingham an exciting and beneficial opportunity.

The final of the four key focus areas will be continued support of Nottingham’s vibrant independently owned businesses. The BID will ensure that these businesses are supported through a proposed programme of event sponsorship as well as introducing an Independents Market and training programmes.

The It’s in Nottingham platform will also be a key focus area moving forward having become a go-to channel for shoppers, visitors and business over the last five years.

As well as developing and growing these existing successful areas, Nottingham BID has also outlined a commitment to a number of transformative projects set to take place in Nottingham in the coming years.

This will include the improvement of key arrival points into the city, more important now than ever as Broadmarsh searches for a new purpose. There will also be support for work that looks at better use of urban spaces as well as creating spaces around the city that help to drive footfall. Finally, there will be a strong focus with regard to the review of planning on key streets such as Bridlesmith Gate.

Polly Reade, a director of Nottingham BID, said: “Over the past decade, thanks to the continued support of our members, the Nottingham BID has been able to deliver a number of initiatives, projects and various levels of support for businesses it represents in Nottingham.

“The launch of our business plan for the next five years outlines our commitment to making Nottingham a city where business can thrive – from the continued focus on our four strategic areas to the crucial support of the redevelopment of the city.”
