The five year Warrington Business Improvement District business plan is broken down in to four themes, with a range of services and projects designed to benefit the trading environment for businesses focused within each one:
Theme One: Destination Warrington
We Are Warrington is the name of the social media channels linked to a destination website providing a voice for the centre which promotes the businesses, partnerships and events that happen within the BID area. The BID works collaboratively with partners to bring animation and events to drive footfall and initiatives to make the high street greener and cleaner.
Theme Two: A Safer Town Centre
In partnership with Warrington Borough Council, Warrington Police and a range of partners such as Pubwatch and Warrington Street Partners we have enabled investment in crime reductions solutions such as knife arches and increased CCTV.
Theme Three: A Connected and Accessible Warrington
We are working with partners on a town centre strategy to create an accessible Warrington that promotes affordable, reliable and frequent public transport routes and prioritises pedestrians and cyclists.
Theme Four: Doing Business in Warrington
We have supported our members throughout the COVID pandemic by working collaboratively with partners to provide information and access to grants during restrictions, and safety solutions for businesses to operate safely. The BID offers free access to training courses for members which have included first aid, visual merchandising and lifting and handling.
