What is the Wakefield BID?

Wakefield businesses have joined forces to create a Business Improvement District (BID) for the city centre. The aim is to transform Wakefield city centre and oversee projects to make Wakefield a must-visit destination.

A BID is a defined geographical area (see map for boundary), and the businesses within it opt (via a ballot) to pay an additional amount to provide services that they, as a group of businesses, think would benefit the city. The BID company has a maximum term of five years before businesses are balloted again to ask if they would like the BID to continue.
