There are crucial activities that an area should undertake in order to achieve a well thought out, well managed and well delivered BID. Here at The Mosaic Partnership, we understand the need to break this down into manageable steps, that are easy to understand and easy to follow.
The Mosaic Partnership has developed a 10 Step Guide specifically for Northern Ireland highlighting the key areas of activity to allow a location to determine whether this is the right course for them and then a tried and tested approach to achieving that objective.
"Originally I was sceptical about BIDs, their logic and rationale behind them. The Mosaic Partnership has helped to reinforce that they are, in reality, a very valuable and in some cases an essential vehicle to enhance the fabric and wellbeing of our town centres and cities. I began just wanting to learn and observe but along the way I became inspired."
"Marketing and place promotion are vitally important for attracting students to Ulster University. The CQ area has enormous potential and provides an excitiing and inspiring environment for the Ulster University campus to flourish and contribute to the dynamic of the Cathedral Quarter."
"A BID would mean a better and more positive City for everyone – business owners, employers, employees, families and communities. It would enable projects to go ahead and to make the City a far more attractive and forward thinking place to bring business and visitors to."
"Over the past 15 years, I have seen Cathedral Quarter grow from a state of neglect and near dereliction into Belfast’s most vibrant shared space filled with arts, culture and a great nightlife. The BID represents our best chance to shape the future and ensure that we keep this area special through times of challenge, change and opportunity"
