HATTON GARDEN BUSINESSES VOTE ‘YES’ FOR BID
GREEN LIGHT FOR £2.5 MILLION INVESTMENT PLAN
The businesses of Hatton Garden have voted overwhelmingly in favour of establishing a Business Improvement District to deliver ambitious improvements across the area in the coming years.
79% of businesses voted ‘yes’ at the ballot (83% by rateable value) firmly endorsing the £2.5 million investment plan set out earlier this year by the Hatton Garden BID team.
The BID went ‘live’ in October 2016 with the aim of seeing Hatton Garden grow as a world-renowned business and visitor destination. Since then the BID team has been working with partners to enhance the area’s iconic status as London’s famous jewellery quarter and develop the experience of working, living, doing business and visiting the area.
Gary Williams, Chairman of the Hatton Garden BID, said:
“This is a fantastic result for the whole business community here in Hatton Garden. Clearly the businesses recognised the huge opportunity before them and have grasped it whole-heartedly. I am looking forward to bringing the business plan to life, injecting the £2.5 million investment in the coming years and delivering the benefits to businesses across the area.”
