A Stronger Voice

The Norwich BID enables local businesses to lobby with one strong voice. This gives all businesses within the BID area the opportunity to:

  • Be heard in campaigns and initiatives designed to give Norwich a competitive edgeStefan and mp
  • Secure investment from new sources and pursue leverage of additional funding
  • Be part of promotional campaigns to position Norwich as an attractive commercial destination
  • Be part of a coordinated approach to give every business within the BID a fair chance to voice their views, raise concerns and make recommendations

Norwich BID aims to provide a strong and coordinated voice for every sector, business and organisation in the city centre on key issues that are outside the BID remit such as;

  • Transport
  • Infrastructure
  • Accessibility

We will provide additional resource, marketing and coordination for the city centre on issues such as Park & Ride and Norwich in 90.  By responding with one strong voice to campaigns designed to give Norwich a competitive edge, secure investment and promote it as an attractive commercial destination.  This collective voice will be robust on issues such as improved broadband speeds and faster rail links.

Park and Ride Lobbying

We will be undertaking research to find out if the current Park & Ride service for Norwich meets the needs of passengers and the business community.  The research findings will suggest potential recommendations, developments and improvements to the current Park & Ride service.

How Prepared is your Business?

Emergencies do not have a timeframe or a set schedule of when they are going to happen, however a carefully thought-out business continuity plan will make coping in a crisis easier and enable you to minimise disruption to your business and customers.
