Help support long-term business growth and boost local economies

Community Improvement Districts (CIDs) are an internationally recognised tool for businesses and the community to work together to create great neighbourhoods. CIDs are business-led, place-based partnerships that bring businesses together to support and grow local economies, high streets and centres. They help enhance local trading environments, encouraging people to get out into their local neighbourhoods and retail centres to enjoy local goods, services and activities on foot.

About the CID Pilot Program

The CID Pilot Program (formerly known as Business Improvement District Pilot Program) is a 2-stage initiative led by the NSW Government, including:

  • Stage 1 Registration of interest – Organisations can express their interest in participating in the program and to help shape the upcoming Stage 2 Funding Round.
  • Stage 2 Funding Round – Formal applications for funding by eligible parties assessed by the NSW Government.

The CID Pilot Program will develop an evidence base that will help to inform a consistent state-wide approach to CID policy in NSW.

We are interested in hearing from the community and will use the information we collect from you to help develop the programs and services that NSW Government provides.

We are collecting only minimal personal information from you. We may collect basic information like your name and contact details, if you choose to provide them.

Having your say is voluntary and you are not legally required to provide any personal information to us. For some consultations, though, you will not be able to have your say unless you agree to include your personal information.

If you do provide personal information to us, you have a right to access it, and can ask us to correct it if it is wrong.

We may share personal information you provide with other parts of the Department of Customer Service (for example, with our Data Analytics Centre) so that we can conduct analysis across all consultations and refine our engagement methodology.

Where we conduct a consultation with or on behalf of a partner agency, we would usually share the information that we collect with that agency. In this instance, we are running this consultation with:
