Business Improvement Districts ('BIDS') in Sandwell

A Business Improvement District (BID) is a shared public and private partnership whereby businesses in a designated area take the collective decision, through a ballot, to pay an additional charge separate to their Business Rates.  This charge provides additional funding for specific development and improvement initiatives.
