Reading Central BID Business Plan 2019-24

Reading Central BID has been in existence since 2006 and is focused on the streets from Jacksons’ Corner to Broad Street MallCommercialBIDproposal cover and the Oracle to the Station. In this time it has been successfully renewed three times by town centre businesses, and over the past five years has provided £2.2 million extra private investment in the town centre. It funds PCSOs, a Business Warden, Christmas lights and events, summer floral displays, street cleaning, a cultural programme and dedicated services to support Reading’s night time economy as well as recycling collection schemes, among many other services.

Reading UK has an exciting and ambitious proposal for the renewal of the BID 2019-24 aimed at making the town centre more attractive and secure for shoppers, visitors and our own business community, support business growth, invest in Reading’s night time economy, , deliver business intelligence and information to the town centre business community.

Adam Jacobs, Chair Reading UK and owner of Jacobs the Jeweller, said: “For the existing BID to continue to deliver the great benefits of the past 12 years, businesses must vote in favour of the proposal. Reading town centre is among the busiest in the south, prospering despite difficult trading times. The BID has been a central force in supporting that economic success.  It is vital that we continue to invest in services that will maintain this pre-eminent position.”
