As the first BID (Business Improvement District) in Wales we are proud of the work we have been doing to make Swansea City Centre a better place to shop, study, stay, visit and do business.

Businesses and organisations in the City Centre voted to establish Swansea BID in March 2006 and we are delighted that the BID tenure has proved such a success that it has been subsequently renewed in 2011 and 2016, for further 5-year terms.

A BID is a not-for-profit business dedicated to improving a City Centre. Since our inception in Swansea we have invested more than £5 million into our City Centre with any surplus revenues ploughed back into the designated BID area through operations and services.

We work with the support of our BID Businesses, currently numbering more than 850, and in partnership with other key local bodies, including the Safer Swansea Partnership, South Wales Police and the City and County of Swansea.
