Town Centre BID

Huddersfield,West Yorkshire

New BID changing perceptions of the town for all.

Huddersfield Steering Group approached pfbb UK due to businesses and organisations in the town centre and surrounding areas facing challenges of economic uncertainty, the pressures from changing lifestyles, increased mobility, new competition, greater customer choice and changes in working practises.

Wanting to overcome the negative perception by many who have never even visited the town and from those who live in and around the town, a business plan was devised to address its economic challenges but highlight its strength in its manufacturing base and its acclaimed University, providing platforms from which to develop the town into an exciting place to live, work and invest.

The BID achieved a YES vote in July 2019, becoming operational in October 2019, and is now focused on projects to increase the vibrancy and accessibility of the town whilst encouraging the growth, development and investment of businesses and organisations which aim to support the development of Huddersfield’s identity.

pfbb  UK has been contracted by the BID on a retained basis to provide strategic, operational, technical and back office systems support.



“We have been working with pfbb UK for a number of years, during this time we have found them to be very professional in all aspects of Business Improvement District, they helped the Huddersfield Partnership get the Huddersfield BID voted in by the businesses in our town. Without their guidance this would not have been possible and as we enter the next phase of our journey they have continued to support us.”
