ABOUT ROYAL TUNBRIDGE WELLS TOGETHER
BUSINESS IMPROVEMENT DISTRICT
Royal Tunbridge Wells Together is a Community Interest Company, incorporated in January 2016. We are a town centre management organisation providing co-ordination, resources and leadership, to reinforce Tunbridge Wells’ reputation as a town of substance and economic importance in the region.
Following a ballot of businesses in October and November 2018, from April 2019, Royal Tunbridge Wells Together became a Business Improvement District. A BID delivers projects and initiatives to improve and promote the town centre trading environment, on behalf of town centre businesses.

WHAT IS A BID?
A BID is a Business Improvement District. It is a defined geographical area – in this case the whole town centre of Royal Tunbridge Wells from the Lower Pantiles up to the top of Mount Ephraim and the end of Camden Road.
A Business Improvement District is a business-led, business-funded partnership, formed via a ballot to improve a defined area to benefit its members. A BID lasts for 5 years and then businesses are consulted again about whether they want to continue as a BID for a further 5 year period. BID projects are always in addition to local authority services, not replacements for them. The aims of a BID are:
To allow businesses to decide and direct what they want for the area
To allow businesses to be represented and have a voice in issues affecting the area
Invest BID levy funds to benefit businesses in the BID area
Deliver tangible benefits to local businesses
To be equitable and sustainable
