We are the Croydon Business Improvement District (BID)

We’ve been at the heart of Croydon town centre for the past 15 years, putting the interests and priorities of the local business community first.

With backing from 400+ organisations across the retail, commercial, leisure, hospitality and public sectors, we were set up to help make a real difference to the town, by introducing initiatives and much-needed services that would not otherwise exist.

Our vision is for Croydon to become one of the most sustainable, welcoming, vibrant and culturally diverse locations in south London in which to do business, work, live and visit.

Croydon BID awarded industry national accreditation

The BID Foundation’s Industry Standards was awarded to Croydon BID in recognition of its standards of transparency and responsible governance, following an independent review process.

The Standards highlight information and documentation that should be made publicly accessible and easily identifiable by every BID and are independently accredited by the Institute of Place Management.
