Business Improvement District
Voted for by local businesses in October 2018, the One Maidstone Business Improvement District is funded by town centre traders, to serve town centre traders. We carry out services such as Ambassador patrols seven days a week, and a radio security network, as well as live monitoring the town centre’s CCTV cameras, stepping in to prevent it becoming a record-only unmanned system.
We have provided the Christmas lights installation and switch on event since 2019, carry out aesthetic projects such as floral planters, the town centre wildlife garden and improving the look of empty units, and undertake regular deep cleans, above those which fall to the standard duties of Maidstone Borough Council. We promote businesses with a variety of marketing campaigns, and produce a quarterly town centre magazine, in print and online at www.onemaidstone.com/magazine

ONE MAIDSTONE SERVICES
Benefitting town centre trade.
Out on the business beat.
Our Ambassadors assist businesses and members of the public.
Working with Kent Police, the BID Ambassadors are the ‘eyes and ears’ of businesses, helping to spot and deter nuisance issues, such as crime, anti-social behaviour, littering and vandalism. First aid trained and often helping the public with emergencies, enquiries and directions, they patrol the town centre seven days a week.
