Your Hereford Business Improvement District

In early 2015 local businesses and property owners voted to establish a Business Improvement District (BID) for the City of Hereford with the principle aim of delivering investment and improvement to the commercial area.

Through surveys, one to one meetings, open days and group events we listened and noted your ideas to enable the City to be prosperous.
