What is Blackburn BID?
Blackburn Business Improvement District (BID) was first set up in 2013 and is currently in its second five year term. Funded by a levy based on business rates, the BID delivers projects and services that benefit Blackburn town centre and its businesses.
On 6 November 2023 Blackburn BID received an overwhelming ‘YES’ vote for another five year term, signalling a further £1.5m of investment into the town centre from 1 January 2024.
