Ballyclare Bars

Welcome to the Ballyclare BID website. This website aims to answer your questions and keep you updated as Ballyclare works together to become an official Business Improvement District.

Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are an effective way in which businesses can take control and improve their trading environment. BIDs are funded and controlled directly by the businesses that pay for them. As a business, you choose which projects the BID fund is spent on.

In order to remain competitive, Ballyclare needs to stand out. By obtaining Business Improvement District status, we can all work together to invest in our local area, which will enhance our trading environment.  Making a real difference by attracting more shoppers and visitors and, in the long term, attracting more businesses to invest in Ballyclare.
