The way Chester BID collects information on visitors to Chester is changing. These changes mean that from 1st September 2019 Chester BID will stop publishing monthly sales reports collected through Springboard. The financial savings resulting from this change will be redirected and used to fund a new public Wi-Fi service in Chester City Centre as outlined in the BIDs 2019-2024 business plan. The Wi-Fi technology will help us generate more accurate intelligence on visitor behaviour that we will share will businesses as soon as the service is up and running.
