Our services

Business Improvement District (BID) Support

We have extensive experience of all aspects of BIDs since their inception in the UK and offer a wide range of BID development, advisory & support services.


Business Improvement Districts play a key role in revitalising town & city centres and can also be considered for regenerating out of town retail, commercial and industrial locations.

At Heartflood, we support the entire BID process, from initial feasibility studies, business plan development and ballot management, to the initiation & roll-out of a BID. We also offer a range of services to established BIDs, such as mid-term reviews, interim management and renewal support.


Our bid support

With extensive experience, including the delivery of over 25 successful BID ballots, we are excellently positioned to be able to develop and support BIDs to deliver tangible improvements.

Every BID is unique in terms of location, context and requirements and so, at Heartflood, we spend time and effort in working closely with our clients to deliver the best possible support, whether that be for new or established BIDs.
