In September, all eligible businesses within the Croydon town centre BID area will be invited to vote on whether they wish us to continue working on their behalf for five further years.

Croydon BID delivers a host of projects, services and initiatives aimed at making a difference to Croydon town centre and the 550 businesses we represent. 

Given the challenges businesses face as a result of the impact of the pandemic, if ever there was a need for a Business Improvement District in Croydon  town centre, now is the time.

Your vote matters.
