The UK's First Business Improvement District

After more than a decade of study, the first Business Improvement District is approved in the United Kingdom; safety, environment, promotion and transport are priorities.

"Kingston business people became the first in the UK to agree to pay more tax, based on the promise that the extra money will be used to improve the town's shopping centre.

From 1 January, 2005, the town will now be home to the UK's first Business Improvement District (BID), setting the scene for similar polls across the country. "
