CityCo and Manchester BID offer a range of operational support. We work very closely with Manchester and Salford’s public agencies to make sure the city centre is working as effectively as possible.
We work on behalf of members and with public sector partners to identify member needs, make recommendations, offer support and develop action plans.
We pride ourselves on connecting, advising and helping members find solutions to day-to-day and longer-term business issues.
We look for better arrangements for a range of operational services such as commercial waste collection, litter and cleansing. We bring the right people to the table to resolve neighbourhood issues together and deliver targeted projects.
We also encourage business community action to empower staff take to a positive environmental stance themselves e.g. by cleaning around premises or volunteering at our ‘clean-up’ days.
Our members benefit from:
- Dedicated Account Manager to provide proactive and reactive operational support
- Access to 24/7 emergency response (including issues around street cleansing, commercial waste, graffiti removal, blocked drains and flooding, rough sleeping, noise and trespassing)
- Online ‘How to Report’ guidance, signposting to direct services around street cleaning, commercial waste, counter-terrorism, squatting, urban exploring and rough sleeping
- Support from CityCo’s Business Crime Reduction Partnership including intelligence, bespoke training and radio-link
- City intelligence including property developments mapping, major road closures and events that may impact business
- Bespoke business training around areas such as how to use a defibrillator, counter-terrorism awareness, urban resilience, ‘Table Top’ emergency scenarios and evacuation planning
- Access to CSR opportunities such as introduction to grass-roots charities and volunteering at environmental clean-ups days.
