ERDINGTON TOWN CENTRE PARTNERSHIP
ABOUT ERDINGTONErdington is situated 4 miles north of Birmingham city centre, with an immediate local population of nearly 30,000. The area is dominated by the High Street, a thriving trading centre, with around 280 local businesses, covering the spectrum of everything the shopper needs!
Erdington town centre is a Business Improvement District, which successfully renewed for a third 5-year term, beginning 1st July, 2017.
Uniquely, the recently restored parish church of St Barnabas, is right in the town centre, providing a brilliant focus. The library, the swimming pool, the fire station, and the local police, are all within walking distance, making Erdington a tight, friendly community, and a great place to shop, eat, and meet people.
Following a successful campaign by the Erdington Town Centre Partnership, (ETCP), businesses in Erdington, in 2007, voted in favour of becoming a Businesses Improvement District (BID). With a majority of 73% of those voting, the Erdington BID was renewed for a further 5 years in November 2011, the new BID period being from July 2012 until June 2017.
A BID is a partnership between the business community and other local stakeholders to develop and take forward action to benefit the trading environment and the public realm, such as cleanliness, safety, greening and marketing The BID will generate approximately £100,000 for each of the five years, which will enable ETCP to enhance cleaner, safer & greener projects, helping to sustain Erdington as a vibrant urban village.
