PaddingtonNow Business Improvement District (BID) is run by businesses, for businesses. We aim to improve Paddington for everyone who works, lives or visits.
Since 2005 PaddingtonNow BID has been delivering vital projects and services that lay the groundwork for change. Improving the quality of our streets, reducing traffic, saving businesses money, managing back anti-social behavior, tackling air pollution, upgrading parks and gardens, changing perceptions of the location, investing in green infrastructure; future proofing Paddington for the growth ahead.
Operating as PaddingtonNow BID, the BID is managed by a Board of Directors representing different business sectors in the BID area.
The BID’s planting and new pavements have made Paddington more attractive, our dedicated Community Safety Team are making it safer, and businesses have seen the benefits of our marketing, including Paddington Covers, Explore Paddington Magazine and an ever growing online community.
