Heart of Manchester - Business Improvement District

A Business Improvement District (BID) is a specific area where businesses work together and invest in agreed services, projects and special events.

Our city centre's retail community has come together to form our first BID – named the Heart of Manchester. For a period of five years, the BID will focus on delivering customer service and promotional initiatives that aim to improve the attractiveness of the city and encourage more visitors.

The BID is financed by a levy made on the basis of rateable value, collected by us and passed to the Heart of Manchester for projects and initiatives to improve visitor experience in the city centre.

The Heart of Manchester BID provides services in addition to those provided by us. Visit the Heart of Manchester BID for more information.
