Abbey Quarter Business Improvement District 

Abbey Quarter BD logo blockBusinesses in the Abbey Quarter voted in favour of the Business Plan to establish an Abbey Quarter BID  2019-24 which will build on the track record of success of the existing Reading Central BID.  Between them, both BIDs  will generate over £5 million extra investment in initiatives and services to make their areas safer, more attractive, business friendly and connected over the next five years.

The Abbey Quarter Business Improvement District (BID) is an area covered by a member-funded and governed set of initiatives. The current BID’s five-year term runs from 2019-24.  Use the navigation on the right to find out more about the area the BID covers, the BID Business Plan, services, news and contacts.
