About Cheltenham BID

A BID is a Business Improvement District and there are more than 300 of them in towns and cities across the UK. BIDs are business led bodies formed to improve a defined commercial area. They are not-for-profit organisations, funded by businesses, for the benefit of businesses.

Cheltenham BID was established in August 2016 and in July 2021 we were successfully voted in by the businensses we support for a second fire-year term.

Since 2016 we have brought new and exciting events to Cheltenham, worked with partners and stakeholders to increase visitor numbers and launched our Tidy Up Cheltenham campaign.

Throughout the various lockdowns, we supported more than 600 businesses, helping them access grants, guiding them through reopening processes, providing social distancing stickers and que management support.

Take a tour of our website to read more about what Cheltenham BID has achieved, how we support the BID businesses and what our plans are for the future.
