Southside BID has written to Cllr Ian Ward, Leader of Birmingham City Council, to request urgent support for the city’s leisure and hospitality sectors through the Local Authority Discretionary Grant Fund.

We will continue to lobby on behalf of our members and venues across the city that have been critically affected by the serious economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic.
