Pride In Our Town

We all want a clean, safe and attractive town centre. Our aim will be to ensure these elements are delivered by partners and the pride in our town shines through our additional projects to strengthen the environment for businesses, residents and visitors alike.

Street Ranger

Continuing our proactive and reactive team on the street.

Rapidly responding to cleaning and maintenance issues, being the eyes and ears on our streets and a regular BID point of contact, whilst offering a friendly ambassadorial presence.

Tackling crime and anti-social behaviour

We will work closely with North Yorkshire Police, Harrogate Homeless Project and other partners to reduce the amount of ASB in our town centre. We will fund initiatives and campaigns to increase visibility whilst playing an active role in tackling specific crime reducing operations.

Deep cleans

Regular deep cleans ensuring our streets are presented at their original best. First impressions really do count and this is a proven way of delivering this.

The BID will deliver cleans at key times of year, such as in the lead-up to Christmas and after major events like Bank Holidays.

Championing our floral heritage

Harrogate is known as a floral destination and we want to develop this further through additional planters, hanging baskets and unique floral displays to ensure our town is top of the league.

Harrogate has already won awards locally, regionally and nationally through BID campaigns.

Vacant units

The high street is changing and vacant units will continue to need to be utilised in an ever-shifting fashion.

The BID will consistently engage with landlords and property owners to ensure our town has lots to offer and looks its best.

Street dressing

Harrogate is known for its unique welcome and we want to continue to support this through eye- catching public realm and targeted campaigns to stand
our town above the rest. Bunting and festoon lighting are just two examples of how we could do this.
