Experience culture like no other at Bangor
Business Improvement Districts (BID's) are becoming a worldwide success story with an estimated 1,400 having been established. The Bangor BID was established in 2015, and has developed a strategy to enhance the business environment and improve economic growth in the BID areas by investing in and improving the City for everyone’s benefit.
The Bangor BID is working hard to make our City Centre a better place to shop, study, visit, stay, work and live. Ensuring the City Centre is Clean and Green, Smart and Safe is vital part of being able to Proudly Promote the district as a location that is Influential and Integrated in its approach to the wide range of businesses that it serves.
The BID is not a substitute for central or local government services, but is a way
additional funding can be raised which businesses then decide how to use to
strengthen the local business economy.
For more information about BID’s and how your business can benefit, please see our about page, or contact us via the link at the bottom of the page.
In 2016, Gwynedd Council commissioned consultants Cynlas Cyf, to prepare a Bangor Strategy document, which incorporated consultations with a number of organisations (including Bangor BID) and agencies active in the city with the aim of preparing a bid to access some of the £100 million Targeted Regeneration Investment Fund.
In recent months, work has been carried out to prepare a Regional Regeneration Strategy for North Wales. Within this Strategy, the city of Bangor is identified as a regional priority. There is a real opportunity to access the funding to provide some truly transformative projects to the City that we hope will have a positive impact for years to come.
Town centres need to be repopulated as community hubs as there is too much retail space in the UK. An estimated 28,000 retail jobs have disappeared in 2018 and a further 40,000 are predicted to go by the end of the year.Read More
