Christmas In Northampton Town Centre 2018

About Us

Northampton Town Centre businesses voted YES to becoming a Business Improvement District (BID) in 2011, and in October 2015 businesses voted YES to renewing the BID for five more years until 2020.

Resident businesses pay a levy each year which is pooled into a collective pot and worth around £1.7million over five years.

It is this pot of funding which is used to deliver the BID events, initiatives and projects in line with the BID Business Plan.

We encourage all businesses to take an active interest in determining priorities and planning projects to meet the aims of the BID plan. If you would like to attend any of our sub-groups or have suggestions for future BID projects then please get in touch with Chris Barker, BID Project Manager on and 01604 837766.
