About the Brentwood Connected BID

Brentwood, Shenfield and Ingatestone businesses have voted to create a unique Business Improvement District (BID) that will secure a significant £2m to be spent on improving the area.

The Brentwood Connected BID will be the first in the UK to incorporate three high streets in one Business Improvement District. Over 500 businesses across multiple sectors will benefit from events, projects and initiatives that increase footfall, dwell time and perception of the area.

Whether you visit us to shop, dine or stay, our community will always make you feel welcome.
