Poole BID

Poole Town Centre sign


The Poole Business Improvement District aim to continually improve the vitality and viability of Poole Town Centre and to provide a forum for town centre businesses by bringing together stakeholders in the town centre to work in partnership, whether they be private sector, public sector or community representatives and to co-ordinate their activities towards a common goal. Currently we work in partnership with other groups including the Borough of Poole, Poole Tourism, Association of Town Centre Management, crime reduction partnerships and any other organisations relating to the town centre.

See: Christmas Events (including Poole BID events).

The Poole Business Improvement District Board has representation from both private business and public services.

The Business Improvement District (BID) was championed and started by the Poole Town Centre Partnership (PTCP). This was led by an elected Management Board which met regularly throughout the year. It was managed day to day by the Town Centre Management Team. The PTCP decided to focus the work of the BID on the area of the Lower High Street, Old Town, The Quay, Dolphin Shopping Centre, High Street and Town Centre North. The catchment area for visitors and investors is local, regional, national and international.

In relation to the BID, the PTCP identified that something needed to change to enable Poole to stay competitive in the local market and watched closely as Bournemouth, Wimborne, Dorchester, Ferndown and other local towns have successfully gone through the BID process and made real differences to the vitality and vibrancy of those areas. The PTCP aimed to set the broad direction of the initiative taking into account the needs of all town centre partners and users and were the named leader of the consultation process.

The PTCP were successful in leading the town through to a successful ballot in April 2016 and have now passed ownership of the BID to the BID Board of Directors and Poole BID Ltd.

Poole BID Ltd was officially launched in July 2016.
