This website aims to answer your questions and keep you up to date with the developments of the Ripon Business Improvement District (BID).

By obtaining Business Improvement Status, Ripon can work together to invest in our business community, enhance our trading environment and make a real difference.

Great news for you, great news for Ripon.


Business Improvement Districts are an effective way in which businesses can take control and improve their trading environment.

BID’s are funded and controlled directly by the businesses that pay for them. As a business, you choose which projects the BID fund is spent on.

Since 2004 when Government passed the Business Improvement Legislation, there have been over 300 successful BID’s in the UK, which over the next 5 years will generate over £100 million in investment.
