The town centre’s 249+ businesses voted to set up Northfield BID, to improve the business trading environment by working on four priorities:
Improving Northfield: Improving the visual and physical appearance of Northfield "high street".
Protecting Northfield: Working with public and private partners to provide a safe and secure Northfield "high street".
Promoting Northfield: Marketing and promoting Northfield Town Centre in a positive light, in order to capitalise upon the "high street's" "retail plus offer", its services, activities and all the benefits of visiting the town centre.
Supporting Northfield: Providing support, guidance and advice for BID businesses, as well as continuing to influence the decision makers ensuring Northfield BID businesses have their issues and concerns raised, working towards a resolution.
Together businesses collectively invest approximately £106,000 per year in Northfield BID to deliver projects that support these aims.

"The BID has improved the area and the flowers look lovely! I enjoyed the Open Forum Meeting as it gave businesses a chance to give feedback and to suggest new ideas. Because of the BID, the Town Centre is 100% better than before. We are all investing in Northfield".
