A deep clean of Harrogate town centre is due to begin from Monday, 8 June 2020.

Harrogate BID (Business Improvement District) has appointed Yorkshire-based UK Nationwide Cleaning Services for the work.

The four-year contract will see the company power washing pavements and street furniture in the town centre of Harrogate.

The work will be undertaken at night and will take approximately two weeks to complete.

Harrogate BID Interim Manager Simon Kent said:

Following the hiatus caused by the coronavirus pandemic, Harrogate BID is now beginning to deliver the objectives set out in the business plan.

In a recent survey of the town centre businesses, the vast majority of those who responded said their number one priority was a deep clean. I’m delighted to say that we are now just days away from fulfilling this.

We have awarded this contract to UK Nationwide Cleaning Services. The company is no stranger to this type of work, as they already work with BIDs across the UK.

From next week, life will slowly start to get back to normal, and we want Harrogate to look superb. The deep cleaning will be a major fact in helping us achieving this.



  1. I trust that they will also be cleaning every shop window as the dirt kicked up by jet washing will be significant.
    Here in Ilkley the same was undertaken in the Summer of 2019, business owners complained about the state of their windows after the work was done, the company then had to clean all windows of the town centre premises.

  2. We’ve been given loads of money by Gov. Let’s spend it quickly, it’s free money.
    Why doesn’t BID focus on what local and tourists want

  3. All good news, But please de weed also around all the bottom of signs, etc, outside shops and the bus station at the moment it looks terrible, like a mass of tumbleweed

  4. A total waste of money, I don’t work hard to earn a living so some public servants can dip into my pocket and remove some of my hard earned cash for this sort of caper. If this is the most deserving need for my cash then leave it me to decide how to spend it please.
