Attractive streets are important for those working in and visiting Winchester as customers, clients and tourists. Winchester BID organises regular cleansing of streets within the BID area, beyond the statutory duties of the local authorities.
Street cleansing activities include removing chewing gum and litter and deep cleaning the pavements.
The BID also has zero tolerance to graffiti and will organise the removal of any graffiti on business premises immediately. Please contact Paul if you have an issue with graffiti.
We attend a group facilitated by Winchester City Council to discuss public realm policies such as to busking, waste management and A-boards.
The BID will provides an extensive floral display programme to enhance the appeal of Winchester during the summer months.
Over 500 hanging baskets and boxes are installed on business premises and key gateways into the city.
Any BID levy payer can request to have a hanging basket for their premises. They are installed at the beginning of June, watered and maintained by the BID’s contractor and taken down in October.
Please contact Paul if you would like to request a hanging basket for your premises.
