BID focus


Key areas that you, our BID members, have identified for us to focus on are:


Encouraging more people to use the city centre is a multi-faceted challenge, but one of the cornerstones is creating an environment that residents and visitors alike can be proud of. Working together with key city partners, Chester BID is invested in a wide and varied programme of maintenance and enhancements throughout the city centre – from simple but effective measures, such as cleaning the Rows, to introducing Welcome Ambassadors to enabling visitors to gain the maximum benefit and enjoyment from their visits.


Chester BID develop integrated marketing campaigns and well-executed strategies to ensure that Chester is high on the visitor horizon and informs people about what the city centre has to offer. Our aim is to promote and deliver a positive visitor experience that will attract people to Chester, increase their dwell time, spending and encourage return visits.

Chester BID develops and promotes a calendar of high quality city centre events that appeal to a wide range of visitors, creating a positive image for Chester and bringing real benefits to city centre businesses within the BID area.
