BID Radio Link

What is it?

The BID currently operates both a day time and an evening and night time economy (ENTE) Radio Link, which operates 24 hours a day.  Currently, there are over 130 businesses active on the network.

Our radio network uses high quality digital radios that have access to the main city channel and a back-to-back channel.

For reassurance and added security the system is also supported by a bespoke service which keeps transmission recordings for 28 days – meaning they can be used to provide further evidence and information for emergency services.

As an additional service which complements the Radio Link, your levy also funds:

  • a dedicated City Watch officer at the Council’s CCTV (City Watch) control room who wors during retail hours on Thursdays and on the evenings on Fridays and Saturdays.
  • access to the DISC Intelligence network which allows intelligence sharing across business in the city centre.
  • monthly security briefings for retailers and night time economy businesses.

Radio Link is part of the BID Safety Partnership. Join today!

Who is it for?

This service benefits all BID members within the BID areas, but mainly retail, night time economy and accommodation.

How can BID members get involved?

If you want to join the service, for premises within the BID area there is a £200+vat one-off payment.

If your business is outside the BID area the cost is £300+vat annually*

*A discount is applied to the annual fee if your business has other sites within the BID area – the annual fee would be £200+vat annually.
