The Board & Governance

The voluntary BID Board represent businesses of all different sizes, sectors and geographical locations in the town.

They ensure the BID levy is spent on projects which are relevant and beneficial to the businesses in the town centre.

The Board currently meet monthly to discuss and decide on all BID activity. In addition to the BID’s Directors, representatives from Bury Market, GMP and TfGM all join the Board as Observers.

If you are a BID business and would like more information about joining the Board, please email

“As a business leader I am excited to have the additional investment and support that the BID will bring that will enhance the town’s appeal and really profile it as one of the best cultural destinations in Greater Manchester. The BID will create a central pot of funds to support business owners’/leaders’ ambitions to make our town great. By working together, we have created a budget of over £2m over the term of the BID to invest into the town centre.”
