About Bracknell BID

The Bracknell Southern and Western Business Areas comprise of some 400 acres of retail, industrial, warehousing and office space, located west of Bracknell town centre. The area is home is over 300 businesses, many of which are key, not just to Bracknell and the Thames Valley, but nationally and internationally.


In 2020, businesses voted in favour of the Southern and Western Business Areas becoming a Business Improvement District (BID), known as the Bracknell BID, the trading name of Bracknell Investment Group Ltd.


A BID is a defined area in which a levy is charged on all business rate payers in addition to the business rates bill. This levy is used to develop projects and initiatives that will benefit businesses in the area. There is no limit on what projects or services can be provided through a BID. The only requirement is that it should be in addition to services provided by local authorities. Improvements may include but are not limited to, improved amenities and facilities, cleansing and environmental initiatives, and additional safety and security measures.


The Bracknell BID is a business-led, not-for-profit partnership created to deliver additional services and to improve the trading environment of the Southern and Western Business Areas (BID Area).
