Get Involved

Over five years, the BID will keep evolving based on your needs as a business and the different opportunities that arise throughout the Yorkshire Coast. 

Your involvement is essential to us, so whether you have an idea, would like to join a working group or have a fully formed project requiring funding, there is plenty of opportunities to get involved.

BID Businesses

All BID businesses are entitled to the full range of services that the BID offers…after all, it is your BID!

To get the most out of the BID, make sure you join our mailing list to receive the most up to date information about developing projects as we are minimising communicating via post to keep costs low.

All BID businesses are entitled to become a formal member of the BID Company,  so long as payment has been received with 3 months of the billing date, allowing you to become a director and vote on key company business.  

To nominate yourself, please firstly complete your membership form and if interested in joining the board, the director application form.

Exempt businesses

Just because you are exempt, doesn’t mean that you can’t join the BID community and have access to the full range of services and get involved in BID projects.

Opting to become a BID Business provides you with the opportunity to contribute to the development of your area and the Yorkshire Coast, including being part of our different products, like Route YC.

Membership to the BID for businesses with a rateable value of less than £12,000 is £180+vat.

For businesses with rateable values greater than £12,000, this will be based on 1.5% of your current rating.

If you would like to become a Member, please speak to the BID Team to discuss how you can become a BID Business and help the 1,300 businesses throughout the Yorkshire Coast make the area the UK’s top tourist destination.
