Established in November 2012 the Norwich Business Improvement District (BID) is an inventive and progressive organisation run for local businesses by local businesses.

“As a group of independent restaurants in Norwich, which is passionate about sustainable investment, we believe winning the Norwich BID can only be a win-win situation for Norwich in these economic times, to benefit businesses, residents and shoppers in our fine city.”

Jayne Raffles
Owner, Raffles Restaurants

“The Norwich BID gives companies in our fine city a united voice to contribute towards the prosperity of Norwich, WHATEVER the size, or sector. This gives us all a vested interest in the way we can improve Norwich’s prosperity.”

Philip Cutter
Owner, The Murderers

“Aviva is proud to support the Norwich BID. We believe it will play a critical role in accelerating Norwich's commercial success, making it a more dynamic and a vibrant place to be in business.

In short, the Norwich BID will give local businesses greater control to ensure their future on-going success.”

Andrew Dernie
Head of Demand Planning, Aviva

“Visitors to Norwich are always blown away by what the city has to offer - a vibrant city centre with national and independent businesses thriving alongside each other. A successful BID will reinforce and build on Norwich's tremendous success at a time of so much economic uncertainty, and will promote the city to a much wider audience - it is an opportunity we must seize.”

Richard Marks
General Manager, John Lewis Partnership

“In an increasingly competitive economic climate, pooling our resources through the Business Improvement District is benefitting Norwich businesses, residents and visitors. It's making the most of Norwich’s retail, leisure, heritage and culture by promoting our assets to a wider audience, and helping drive continuing growth across the city centre and beyond.”

Jane Claridge
General Manager, Norwich Theatre Royal

“Norwich is such a fantastic city, and if we have the chance to enhance what we have by raising the city's profile to visitors, investors and businesses by strengthening our offering, we should completely embrace that opportunity.

Winsor Bishop is proud to be right behind this scheme.”

Sophie Fulford
Managing Director, Winsor Bishop

“The Norwich BID will have a positive impact on all of our businesses. Rather than individually looking to grow market share it’s about working together to grow the size of the market, and with it opportunity. We will all win.”
