What We Do

By working together, Vauxhall One will be able invest at least nearly £4million directly into improving Vauxhall over the next five years. This money will also be used to attract further funding from other sources. Talking to businesses in the runup to the BID ballot helped us identify the actions that would mean most to our members.



Making sure Vauxhall is safe for everyone


Lightening the area with colour


Keeping Vauxhall Clean


Keeping the community involved in shaping Vauxhall


We are reducing street crime and antisocial behaviour by becoming one of the first BIDs in the UK to build on the Met Police’s S92 Police Officer scheme. The S92 agreement, sees Vauxhall One pay for the cost of one police officer with the Met matching that funding for an additional officer, this means that Vauxhall now has two additonal full time police officers dedicated to Vauxhall.

CCTV Cameras

A total of six new CCTV cameras have been purchaased and installed by us around the Vauxhall area, all of which can be monitored and controlled by our dedicated Vauxhall Security team 24 hours a day

Crime Stats

S92 Officers

Working in partnership with Safer Business Network, we are now employing a team dedicated to the safety and security of Vauxhall throughout the day.


A BID is an organisation established and run by local businesses to improve the commercial conditions of the defined area. It is funded through a levy on business rates, introduced via a ballot for which a majority of eligible businesses (by number and rateable value) must vote in favour. If the ballot is successful the BID term is usually 5 years during which time an agreed set of services are delivered towards the collective objectives of the BID members.
