Bid Operations; Cleansing & Enhancement

Making sure the City Centre is attractive, clean and inviting is important.

The BID works closely with the Local Authority Highways and Cleansing teams to improve and enhance the areas in which people shop and work by delivering regular street wash initiatives and by providing the chewing gum and private graffiti removal schemes, all of which help our City Centre visitors and workers enjoy a more pleasant experience.

We also work with and secure support from Keep Wales Tidy, The Chewing Gum Action GroupWrigleys and the Welsh Government on behaviour change campaigns.

We provide BID area businesses discounts on hanging baskets that improve the appeal of the BID area and the businesses they are on and have/are working with the Local Authority to deliver a City Centre floral scheme aimed at enhancing the area.

Working with the Local Authority this operating group has also directly funded and operated a dedicated and focused cleansing team to operate in the BID area with equipment/machinery such as Glutton Machines, jet washers and vehicles all branded with BID livery.

We have also provided a team of litter pickers operational during the twilight period to help improve the visitor’s experience at this time and have worked with probation services to deliver bespoke projects and services as part of community service.
