Extending the BID
Businesses outside the BID area are regularly asking if they can be part of it and benefit from our services so we have decided to extend the area at re-election, which is the only chance to change the boundary.
In order to increase our income to plough back into services and swell our critical mass for marketing and promoting the Angel, we would be extending in three directions – north along Upper Street to Islington Town Hall, along Essex Road to Gaskin Street and Pentonville Road to Penton Street.
At least 20 businesses in these areas have already joined as voluntary members, paying the BID levy and receiving our services.
We will be asking businesses in all these areas whether they will to join, and they will be voting in October.
