What is a BID?

We’re a not-for-profit organisation set up to represent the needs of local businesses and deliver meaningful improvements to a city area for visitors, residents and workers.

About the BID

Since 2017, Norwich BID has worked on behalf of over 700 business in the greater Norwich area. We are funded, managed and led by these businesses, and – during the course of the last decade – have delivered work which we know has had a meaningful impact on people who live and work here. We are forward thinking and collaborative, built of an exceptional team of people who are passionate about this city.

Our works sits across tourism, city marketing, enhancing and animating the cityscape, and ensuring businesses have what they need to trade as profitably, safely and sustainably as possible. You can read about our current – and previous – projects here.
