In August 2016, businesses in Bridgend Town Centre voted overwhelmingly in favour of establishing a Business Improvement District (BID). This is a business led and funded initiative, which will raise £480,000 of investment for Bridgend over the next three years, to be spent on key projects to improve the Town Centre. The aim is to increase footfall and the vibrancy of Bridgend.

Bridgend is the eleventh BID in Wales, joining Swansea, Merthyr Tydfil, Newport and most recently Caernarfon, Bangor, Colwyn Bay, Neath, Llanelli, Pontypridd and Aberystwyth. A BID company, named CF31, will be formed. CF31 will be a business-led and funded initiative that will invest funding back into the defined BID area on projects and services designed to make our town centre more vibrant.
Businesses included are those within the defined BID boundary, click here to see the BID BOUNDARY MAP, that have a total rateable value of £6,000 and above.
