LOCAL EMPLOYERS SECURE ROLE IN VAUXHALL REGENERATION
Employers in the Vauxhall area of London now have a flagship organisation to protect and enhance their interests. The ‘Vauxhall One’ Business Improvement District (BID) was approved at ballot on Friday 24th February.
The new organisation will invest upwards of £4m in Vauxhall over the next five years. Its four themes are Vauxhall Safe (reducing fear of crime), Vauxhall Change (improving public realm), Vauxhall Day & Night (promoting the area’s shops, hotels, restaurants & clubs) and Vauxhall Together (engaging with the local residential community).
Vauxhall One Chair Richard Tice commented: “Vauxhall One is delighted with this strong show of support and commitment from businesses, charities and public agencies, from both daytime and nighttime economies. It is a real show of their intent to make a difference, to see Vauxhall become a safer, cleaner and better place for employees and residents alike. Our job now is to deliver on this support. Work begins immediately.”
Vauxhall One is the 27th BID in London and the second in the London Borough of Lambeth. BIDs are playing a prominent role in the management and promotion of many of the capital’s key business locations, including the West End (New West End Company), Piccadilly/Leicester Square (Heart of London Business Alliance), Bankside (Better Bankside) and Paddington (Paddington BID).
