Inclusive Economy

We incorporate sustainability across all our programmes and projects. Our aim is to ensure Victoria flourishes as an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable business district.

Driving an inclusive economy in Victoria

The Victoria BID is working to further establish Victoria as a thriving commercial business hub. We aim to increase footfall for retailers, help develop small business networks and contribute to attracting inward investment.

We work to enhance the economic prosperity of Victoria in a sustainable way. We are addressing the diversity of the retail and leisure offers, our ability to support SMEs, the environmental impacts of change and ensuring the area’s existing residential population shares in Victoria’s success. Building sustainable growth and prosperity requires co-ordinated action from all sectors. We work in partnership with businesses to deliver a prosperous local community over the short, medium and long-term.

Our top priorities

  • Victoria Privilege Card – Our exclusive discount card on brands, products and services is designed to drive footfall and spend plus reward customer loyalty.
  • Taking the opportunity to influence policies and research as Victoria goes through a period of transformation.
  • Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) – We are developing our own CSR strategy.
  • Victoria Employment Service – A free, flexible employment support package for employers wanting to employ local people.
  • SME Network development – A dedicated network to help small to medium sized businesses get involved in local decision-making processes.
  • For more on our future plans go to Victoria 2020 A vision for a vibrant Victoria
