If your business is located in a Business Improvement District there will be an additional levy on your business rates.

This levy is used to develop projects which will benefit businesses in the local area.

There is no limit on what projects or services can be provided through a Business Improvement District. The only requirement is that it should be something that is in addition to services provided by local authorities. Improvements may include, but are not limited to, extra safety/security, cleansing and environmental measures.

We are committed to encouraging and supporting BIDs and there is currently one BID in the Welwyn Hatfield Borough Council area. To find out more visit the Welwyn Garden City Town Centre BID website.
