Watch the BID Annual Showcase and Business Plan Launch
On Wednesday 14 April, we hosted our Annual Showcase and Business Plan launch event! Broadcast live from the MSP Studios, the virtual event was led by company Chair Tony Wilson and Chief Executive Bill Addy, alongside Jennina O’Neill chair of Retail & Leisure BID and Julie Johnson chair of Commercial District BID.
During the event we celebrated our progress and achievements from the past 12 months and highlighted the work that we will continue to do. We unveiled our ambitious new plan to improve Liverpool city centre, ensuring it is more welcoming to both business and visitors as it opens up post-pandemic.
The five year business plan proposes an £7million investment in the city centre, with a core focus on improving the public realm. A new expanded BID Area will add areas along the Waterfront and St George’s Quarter to the existing BIDs in the Commercial District and Retail & Leisure BID in the city centre.
The notification of the BID Ballot is 29 April, with the ballot running from 13 May until 10 June. If over 50% of businesses vote yes, by number and rateable value the new BID area will begin on 12 June 2021.
