Welcome to the Great Yarmouth BID 

Directly funded by contributions from town centre businesses the Great Yarmouth Business Improvement District (gyBID) delivers a range of initiatives aimed at making the town centre a safer and more attractive place for people to live, work and visit. The delivery of these initiatives has been managed by the Town Centre Partnership, a not-for-profit company, which has been managing town centre projects in Great Yarmouth since 1997.

Great Yarmouth Business Improvement District (gyBID) covers the geographical area of Great Yarmouth town centre and was originally formed in 2006 following a successful ballot of town centre businesses. The fourth and current term went live from April 2021 following a renewal ballot that saw 88% of votes cast in favour of the gyBID being renewed for a further 5 years.
