Retail District: Additional Street Cleaning

12th Oct 2021

In previous years, the Business Improvement District has funded an annual ‘deep clean’ of high footfall streets in the retail area, in addition to the core cleansing that is the responsibility of the Council.

From this October, the BID is funding more cleaning – on a temporary trial contract over the next year.

The intent is to be able to respond on a weekly basis to the needs of BID businesses. We know from our City Hosts and business requests that this frequently involves rear service yards and doorways, often affected by issues of litter, graffiti and the use the drugs.

This BID initiative will be supplementary to baseline city cleaning delivered by Manchester City Council. The new service will hopefully help to improve overall standards in the BID district and respond to one of the biggest concerns we hear from businesses.
