Business Improvement Districts The Board and Team

Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are developed, managed and funded by businesses for five years.

The company has been set up as a not for profit, limited by guarantee, overseen by a Board of Directors who represent levy-paying businesses from different areas and sectors.

Our private sector directors drive the company plan at all times, with a protected voting power of 81%.

We will endeavour to make sure the BID operates transparently and in the best interest of promoting, protecting and supporting businesses throughout the Yorkshire Coast, and will keep updating you on new and developing projects so we can adapt to what each area needs.


If you would like to join the BID board of directors, get in touch and let us know how you feel you can help us deliver the business plan in your area.
