About Croydon BID

Hello and welcome to the Croydon Business Improvement District. We are a not for profit company set up by businesses in 2007 to give Croydon a competitive edge and make it more welcoming to all those who use it.

Geographically, we are one of the largest Business Improvement Districts in the UK, covering virtually the entire town centre.

Croydon BID represents the interests of around 570 organisations, including well-known brands and businesses in the retail, office, leisure, hospitality and public sectors. In November 2016, Croydon businesses voted overwhelmingly in favour of Croydon BID continuing for a third five year term from April 1st, 2017 to March 31st, 2022. 

What are Business Improvement Districts?

Business Improvement Districts like ours are business-led initiatives set up in defined areas to add value and improve the local trading environment. They are democratically elected organisations that can only be created when a majority of businesses in the area vote in favour of supporting them – both by number of votes and by aggregate rateable value. 

There are currently over 250 active BIDs in the UK. For more information visit British BIDs
