Making Colmore BID the voice of business in the District and the city

Your BID, Your Levy, Your Future.

We are an ambitious BID and the team and Board feel energised and excited about what we can achieve with your support in BID3 for the period 2019-2024.

We have been working with Broadway Malyan and other partners to develop a public realm masterplan for the District, which complements the Snow Hill Master Plan launched in 2015 by Birmingham City Council and Colmore Business District. Works will start in this yearon new public realm in the District, but the Broadway Malyan visionary plan provides inspiration for projects for BID3 and beyond.

Our part of the city centre is developing and growing; not only with an expanding professional services sector, but with new coffee shops, bars and restaurants setting up. We are proud that we have many independents in the hospitality sector and we want to see that increase and flourish in future years. We will grow and develop Colmore Food Festival, we will produce marketing material, we will promote venues via social media and we will do whatever we can to help to create the right environment for continued growth in this sector.

We are fully supportive of the Commonwealth Games coming to Birmingham in 2022, and we will work actively with partners to maximise the benefits for the District.

We know that feeling safe and sound is extremely important to everyone in the district; we think it is important in BID3 that we provide more on street support beyond 5pm and into the early evening.

We know you are concerned about paving not being at an appropriate standard for a prestigious Business District such as ours, so in the future we would like to work with Amey to see how we can raise the standard of paving in the District.

We have lots of of ideas for the future of Colmore BID, but more importantly we want your ideas; this is your BID and we want you to help shape it with us.

We will be holding focus groups, we will be visiting your offices, we will be talking to you at events, all to find out what you would like to see in our new BID because this is…

Your BID, Your Levy, Your Future.
