As the current situation regarding coronavirus is still having a huge impact on us all we at the BID want to show our support and advise you on the help that is available during what is an extremely challenging time for everyone. Here at the BID, a lot has been happening during ‘lockdown’ including many new and exciting projects to support our businesses, which can be found on our new Project Page, and we have been working closely with the BID Foundation, the Local Authority and other BIDs to devise a Recovery Plan for the City. The main objectives of our Recovery Plan can be seen below.
“These are unprecedented times for businesses and we know that many of you are worried not just about staying safe but about how you can ride out the most testing economic conditions since the Second World War. One thing is certain: you are not in it alone and there are many people in Bradford – not least your BID – who are working hard to ensure that support is there and your voice is being heard where it matters. Keep checking our website and reading our newsletters and stay strong – and safe.” – Ian Ward, BID Chair
“It seems likely there’s a long way to go until this crisis is over but our key priority is looking ahead and planning for the future post-lockdown. We are working hard on our recovery plans and we would be very pleased to hear your concerns and ideas for how we can ensure the city centre is best placed to come back fighting when the storm has passed. Please let us know what you might need in the weeks and months ahead so we can build a plan to ensure Bradford comes back even stronger.” – Jonny Noble, BID Manager
It really hasn’t been the same without you but Bradford BID have been very busy during lockdown getting the City Centre clean, bright and inviting for when you all return. Check out the BID’s recent projects: Hot Washing and Chewing Gum Removal, Interchange Ramp Mural and Hanging Baskets in the video which have all made a huge difference. The BID would like to thank all of the partners involved in these projects and we hope when you do visit the centre that it makes your visit even more enjoyable.
There are many more exciting projects to come so keep an eye on our Projects Page and on our social media platforms and we look forward to seeing you again soon!
