Working Together for a Stronger York.

Working Together for a Stronger York.

We find ourselves in unique and unprecedented circumstances, which is having a profound impact on all of our businesses. The York BID remains open and operational and is keen to support the business community through this period. 

We will:

  • Keep businesses informed about the support available to them and how to access it.
  • Represent businesses by engaging with key decision makers to ensure they understand the impact on businesses in the city. 
  • Work with our partners at City of York Council and Make it York on a co-ordinated approach to supporting businesses and the wider city.
  • Plan to assist the long-term recovery of the business community.
