Business Improvement District
Like many town centres Stockport faces an increasing number of challenges to compete with out of town retail and business parks and the online shopping offering. But there are real opportunities to create a new kind of town centre, a 21st century destination that can be enjoyed by residents, businesses and visitors alike.
In October 2016, Vision Stockport successfully campaigned for Stockport town centre to be designated a Business Improvement District. On 1st April 2017 Stockport’s BID launched as Totally Stockport.
Totally Stockport is funded by a 1.25% BID levy on business rates, generating funds that can be invested in projects and initiatives to improve the town centre offering for everyone.
Totally Stockport wants to encourage collaborative working, encouraging groups to work together, to inspire others to create a safe, exciting and sustainable Stockport of which we can all enjoy and be proud.
