BID projects could include:

  • Norwich congestion monitoring
  • Norwich city centre Wi-Fi
  • Recycling and waste cost savings
  • Vacant shop campaign 
  • The BIG Conversation - 3 annual sector conferences
  • Skills, Education and Entrepreneurship

We will provide additional resource, marketing and coordination for the city centre on issues such as Park & Ride and Norwich in 90.  By responding with one strong voice to campaigns designed to give Norwich a competitive edge, secure investment and promote it as an attractive commercial destination.  This collective voice will be robust on issues such as improved broadband speeds and faster rail links.

Park and Ride Lobbying

We will be undertaking research to find out if the current Park & Ride service for Norwich meets the needs of passengers and the business community.  The research findings will suggest potential recommendations, developments and improvements to the current Park & Ride service.
