Skipton Business Improvement District (BID) alongside Stopping Trouble and Nght-time Disorder (STAND), a pub-watch scheme, the local authorities and Skipton Police, aim to reduce alcohol related crime and antisocial behaviour.

This we have in common with Best Bar None!

To help us achieve our aim, we launched the Skipton Crime Reduction Partnership (SCRP) in 2014.  Skipton BID and its Partners work together for the benefit of Skipton’s businesses, to discourage retail crime and anti-social behaviour, help the police catch criminals and so make Skipton a better place in which to carry out business activities, and a better place for residents and visitors alike.

In 2017 Skipton BID and its Partners were very pleased to announce the launch of the Best Bar None accreditation scheme within our town.  We feel this National Award Scheme compliments SCRP’s goals, through regular assessments and annual awards to encourage licensees to go beyond the legal minimum with a view to reducing alcohol related disorder and enhance the reputation of town centres where the scheme operates.
