The well-known online forum Urban75 has a discussion this month about a proposed Brixton BID. Brixton is in south London, UK, and a very mixed inner city area.
The topic starter says:
I had heard [this] might be happening a while back but saw article in SLP on Friday. BIDs started in the US and the idea was brought here by the last Government. They are controversial both here and in US. There has been no consultation with Brixton residents about this. From what I have read residents do not get much say in it. Though it could affect people who live and work in a BID area who do not run a business in the area.
The SLP is the South London Press but a search of their website has nothing about a proposed Brixton BID and there appears to be no other information online anywhere.
