The Mosaic Partnership offers incremental approaches to effective place management partnership approaches, including identifying the best organisational structure to suit your needs, and developing funding tools that provide sustainable resources for implementing projects and programmes. Our primary place management services include:



  • Business Improvement Districts (BIDs)

Since national legislation was passed in the UK in 2004, BIDs have become one of the most popular and sustainable place management funding tools in the country (similar success has been seen in Canada, the US and several locations throughout Europe). With more than 180 BIDs operating in places large and small throughout the UK, they have proven themselves to be the answer to sustainable funding to help places proactively manage improvements and initiatives that promote the growth and well-being of a place. The Mosaic Partnership has created a successful three-phased process to guide locations through BID feasibility, development and campaign. Additionally, we assist with the execution of the BID business plan, as well as its implementation, management and evaluation once a BID has been established. The Mosaic Partnership was instrumental in the development of the BIDs legislation in the UK, parts of Europe and Singapore and has extensive knowledge of BIDs in the USA through its work. To date we have advised on the successful development of over 60 BIDs.

  • Town Centre Management

Town centre management (TCM) is an approach to building relationships between various facilities within a central area of a town. It includes both public services – such as government facilities – and private services – such as retail, leisure, cultural and business facilities. Successful TCM works to make a town centre more attractive to both residents and visitors by encouraging partnership and cooperation rather than competition between the various facility and services providers. The end goal is to create a thriving town centre that gives the entire district a competitive advantage over other areas either on the edge of, or outside of, the town. The Mosaic Partnership advises on the creation and ongoing facilitation of town teams and town centre management schemes, working with both public and private sector partners to establish the most appropriate structures and planning approaches to ensure success.

  • Partnerships

As areas look to build more formal approaches to manage place, The Mosaic Partnership can help to determine the most appropriate partnership structure to meet your needs, and advise on the establishment of that partnership. We work to bring together stakeholders in a place and determine the most appropriate legal structures to undertake the work they intend to do. We also help with formal establishment, development and progression of these partnerships, including business and action plans, management and implementation. We can also advise on funding sources and channels to help partnerships undertake their work.                                                                                                                                                                                               – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – 

  • Capacity Building

If you’re starting from square one and looking for a way to bring stakeholders in your location together to consider a more unified place management approach, The Mosaic Partnership’s capacity building programme may be a good place to start. We can educate and inform your stakeholders on what place management is and how it works, while engaging them in the actual creation of a new approach. This unique process brings together diverse voices and finds common themes, all while earning participants buy-in to a new way of taking ownership in how their district and community evolves.

  • Social Enterprise

Social enterprise organisations apply commercial strategies to maximise improvements in human and environmental well being, rather than maximising profits for external stakeholders. Social enterprises can be structured as a for-profit or non-profit, and may take the form of a cooperative, mutual organisation, social business or charity organisation. Innovative social enterprises can get actively involved in shaping the social and economic fabric of a place, and The Mosaic Partnership can help advise as to where such approaches might be beneficial and valuable in your community.
