Welcome to Skipton BID  😊

A BID is a Business Improvement District, and Skipton has been a BID Town since 2009.

In brief, here’s how it works:

The BID Businesses pay into a central pot, which is then used to deliver services and activities, to improve Skipton’s appeal to residents, visitors and investors, and so bring more business into the town.

A lively and thriving town means Skipton is a more appealing place to work in, and an attractive location to live in.

You’ll find more information about what we do on the other pages.
