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.

We have now produced a Draft Business Plan that provides our response to the first period of consultation that ran from 03 March 2017 to 13 April 2017.  This Business Plan sets out thematic project areas and our spending plans.  We also set our initial levy rate and key financial decisions. 

It's now your chance (until 5 August 2017) to review this framework for the BID and have your say on the detail projects and objectives of the final business plan to be released on the 5th of September.


The Consultation Survey on the Draft Business Plan can be accessed at:

The Survey should take an average of 5 minutes to complete and is limited to 10 quick questions concerning the content of the Draft Business Plan.  It’s best to have the questionnaire to hand as this will help you run through questions faster.  Remember this is the final opportunity to shape the Business Plan! Thank you for participating in our survey, your feedback is important to ensuring the BID delivers for you. Please submit your responses by 5pm on the 5th of August.
