Chichester BID works closely with the Chamber of Commerce and Chichester District Council on mentoring and development programmes for businesses. We are constantly exploring options to provide support and opportunities to BID members to help with the development and promotion of the BID area as a retail and cultural destination. Please tell us of any campaigns you are organising and call 01243 773263 to speak to a member of the team if you have an idea you would like us to pursue.
The Chichester Gift Card was launched in October with over 145 businesses participating. Sixty three pence in the pound stays in the local economy when spent locally and this card is designed to trap local spend. It is only valid in Chichester participating businesses and cannot be used online.
The role of the BID Ambassador ensures that the BID team are always in touch with the concerns of the levy payers on almost a daily basis. The Ambassador provides support and advice to them on parking, markets and signage, ensuring the business voice is heard.
The BID team continues to produce the Visitor Map, a free piece of literature available at collection points around the city. We also produce various printed shopping guides and trails to help visitors to discover more of what Chichester has to offer.
