In 2012, Huntingdon businesses were invited to vote for a BID for Huntingdon. Of those who voted, 81% said yes. The official launch was in November 2012 and since then much has been happening to deliver key aspects of the four Project areas:

BID Huntingdon is funded and controlled directly by the businesses in Huntingdon that pay for them. If you are a BID Huntingdon business, you can have a say in which projects the BID supports.

The BID in Huntingdon raises over £160,000 per year through the BID levy to spend on the things that businesses in Huntingdon feel are important to themselves and the town.  Attracting additional income amounts to approximately £10,000 per year.

Since September 2004, when the legislation was introduced, there have been over 190 successful BIDs in the UK. (Source www.bidintel.co.uk/bid-stats)
