Improving places: culture and BIDs

A new report from the Arts Council England examines the role of BIDs across the UK.

The report found that BIDs can help communities thrive and drive economic growth, but particularly interesting are several recommendations that:  local authorities are advised to consult BIDs ahead of producing local plans; the Mayor’s office should select a BID champion for the cultural leadership board; and the Government should consider tax incentives for cultural projects where BIDs are partners and make BID projects eligible for central government funding across departments.

The report highlights the value of BIDs in driving culture-led economic regeneration.
