Altrincham Business Improvement District

In November 2015 businesses in Altrincham were invited to vote on establishing a Business Improvement District (BID) in Altrincham town centre, and delivered a resounding ‘Yes’ vote in favour of the proposal, with a majority of 68% of voters (74% by rateable value).

The BID was launched in April 2016 and is run by businesses for businesses, with a Board of ten local representatives predominantly from the private sector who oversee the work of the BID Team. The Board and BID Team are supported by Advisory Groups covering Retail Security, Town Management, Goose Green Festival and Best Bar None.

Altrincham BID’s Business Plan covers three main themes, and over its five-year term, projects will be developed and delivered to drive improvement in each area:

Experience Altrincham

Giving more reasons to visit, more often; creating a strong and stylish consumer identity for Altrincham; promoting the breadth of retail and leisure offer across the town and delivering a high quality cultural offer through events and festivals to attract and retain visitors. 

Rediscover Altrincham

Putting the heart back into Altrincham to ensure that shoppers and local residents feel welcome in the town, placing the town centre at the core of the community.

Business Altrincham

Improving working life for businesses in Altrincham; creating a responsible business community that is able to affect long term change in the town through proactive leadership; connecting and collaborating with local people and groups.
