Formed in 2013, Southend BID is the Business Improvement District (BID) Company for Southend

As a BID, we're funded by businesses within a defined BID zone, who have a rateable value of £15,000 or more. They pay a annual fee (a small percentage of their rateable value) and in doing so receive a lot in return
