Business Improvement Districts
Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are business-led, and business funded, not-for-profit organisations set up to improve a defined commercial area. BIDs are statutorily established once voted for by the majority of businesses in an area and are then required to renew their mandate with their business electorate every five years. There are now over 325 BIDs operating in the UK, including more than 65 in Greater London.
Angel BID Ltd is a not for profit company limited by guarantee. Angel BID Ltd was formed in 2007 to operate the BID and is the BID Proposer putting forward these plans for 2022-2027.
Assuming a successful renewal ballot, the BID with continue and will be operated by Angel BID Ltd under the trading name angel.london
The experienced team at angel.london will manage the projects and services in this proposal, with support from specialist advisers as needed. We will also work with other BIDs, Cross River Partnership, TfL, Met Police and other strategic partners to deliver activities and projects.
