Sheffield BID started in 2015. The business improvement district currently includes over 500 levy paying businesses within the inner ring road. As we approach the end of our five year term, under Government legislation, we are required by law to run a renewal ballot to continue to a second term (2020-2025)

We need your feedback on our proposed programme for the next five years
