ABOUT THE BEDMINSTER BID

Bedminster BID funding is generated via a small levy on all eligible businesses in the area and paid into a central 'kitty' in November each year, to be spent on projects that benefit Bedminster businesses. Our stated priorities are to:

  • Create vibrant streets that excite and delight

  • Market and promote Bedminster

  • Reduce crime and improve the shopping environment

  • Advocate and lobby for Bedminster business interests

  • Drive down costs 

Please get in touch if you have any ideas about what we should do. Or, if you wish to attend a board meeting or one of our specialist sub-groups in Marketing, Arts & Culture or Built Environment (ie transport, planning and street improvement), please see our calendar here and drop us a line.

Finally we are grateful to local accountants Tyrrell Procter and communications experts Plaster for their generous pro bono contributions to the BID’s activities.
