Services the BID provides include:

Greening & Cleaning

Planting projects and a rolling program of BID-funded deep cleaning are underway to enhance the look and feel of Bury town centre.

The BID does not replace Council services and specialist deep-cleaning carried out by the BID is in addition to the Council cleansing. The Town Centre Management working group decide which areas should be prioritised in each phase.

Seasonal & Christmas Lights

The BID businesses during the consultation process said a key priority for them was to see Christmas lights across the town centre, in addition to the privately-funded lighting schemes of The Rock and Mill Gate.

Seasonal lighting for the winter months and additional Christmas lighting schemes are underway for Christmas 2023.

Lighting will feature on parts of The Old Rock, Bolton Street, Silver Street, Market Street, Haymarket Street and Tithebarn Street.
