WELCOME TO BID LEAMINGTON
Royal Leamington Spa is a beautiful, distinct and vibrant town that does things differently to achieve unique results. It matters ‘how’ things are done and at the heart of the this are the ideas of community, creativity and wellbeing.
Since 2008, the Business Improvement District (BID) for Royal Leamington Spa has made excellent progress in delivering services and projects, agreed by the BID Board and its partners, which increase the appeal of the town, support the businesses and help to improve trading performance.
BID Leamington delivers for the town and its local businesses through four activity areas: Promoting, Enhancing, Supporting and Influencing. Some of our initiatives are very high public profile and some less so, all with the common aim of improving Royal Leamington Spa for the benefit of all.
We provide a single, collective voice for the retail and leisure businesses of Leamington, raising matters of concern with decision makers, providing business support to support growth and promote the town far and wide.
We are proud to be accredited by The BID Foundation, recognising the strong governance, transparency and accountability of BID Leamington.
Throughout this website, our aim is to inform and support the 355 levy paying businesses and our voluntary members who, through BID Leamington, contribute towards creating an attractive, safe and well-promoted town. We also like to hear from you directly, so please do get in touch if you can’t find what you need.
BID Renewal 2023-2028
The current five-year term for BID Leamington comes to an end in June 2023. As such businesses were asked to vote on the continuation of BID Leamington for a further five years in a renewal ballot carried out throughout the month of March.
We are pleased to announce the proposal to renew BID Leamington until 2028 was supported with 90% of businesses voting in favour by number, and 94% in favour by rateable value.
The formal declaration can be viewed by clicking here.
We wish to extend our sincere thanks to town centre businesses for their continued trust and support and look forward to supporting you to ensure the town that we love is as strong and vibrant as it can be.
