BID Themes

THE VISION: Vibrant, thriving, sustainable, inspirational and welcoming.

With the support of levy paying businesses in Redcliffe and Temple, we will create and deliver projects for the benefit of the whole community adding value to this historic yet evolving area, attracting investment and influencing positive change.

The Redcliffe and Temple BID will be shaped and owned by the businesses that it represents. Working groups, to include interested staff members from across the BID area, will be developed to lead on the projects on behalf of the businesses.
