BID 2 - Belfast CBD

Following the success of Belfast City Centre Management establishing Belfast One as Belfast’s first Business Improvement District (BID) on 1st of April 2016, Belfast Central Business District (BID) is now in development for the BT2 area of Central Belfast.

This area of the city centre functions as Belfast’s ‘square mile’ with many large offices in the finance, technology, professional services and government sectors.  The area is also home to many reputable restaurants, historic bars, quality hotels and a range of independent retailers.

After a year of preparation Belfast Central Business District (Belfast CBD) has now reached the ballot phase. The publication of the final Business Plan for the business improvement district on the 14th of September formally launches the six week long campaign to secure a ‘yes’ result on 27th of October.  The ballot involves over 420 votes from 350 businesses across 10 sectors.  Businesses have an opportunity to secure an investment of over £2.4 million in a wide range of money-saving and promotional projects over a five year period in the BT2 postcode area south of City Hall.
