Maidstone's Business Improvement District (BID) came info effect on 1st October 2018. The BID is managed by One Maidstone, a not-for-profit organisation that is dedicated to improving the trading environment in Maidstone.
A BID is a business-led and business-funded body formed to improve a defined commercial area. The Maidstone BID will fund initiatives to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour, and deliver events and promotions to increase trade and footfall in the town. All the money is ring-fenced so that it can only be spent within the specific BID area.
Since the BID went live a number of initiatives designed to enhance the town centre have come on stream including the introduction of Street Ambassadors and a specialist street cleansing service.
