About Us

PaddingtonNow Business Improvement District (BID) is run by businesses, for businesses. We aim to improve Paddington for everyone who works, lives or visits here.

Since it began in 2005, the BID has played a key part in Paddington’s renaissance as a business destination. Our 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.
