Love Wimbledon Business Improvement District Gets a YES!

Love Wimbledon has received a majority YES vote from businesses, to renew the BID for a third term from April 2022 for five years.

85% of businesses voted ‘YES’, representing 92% of the rateable value, enabling a further £2.5 million of investment from businesses into Wimbledon Town Centre over the next five years. This result gives clear confirmation and support of Love Wimbledon BID’s previous performance and delivery, and is a very strong mandate for our future based on our BID Proposal 2022-27.

“Businesses, people and places make a high street and a confident business district. Wimbledon Town Centre has a strong and positive business community who have voted for the Love Wimbledon BID placing the town in a great position for the future. We will continue to listen to the businesses, we will be responsive and transparent, we will innovate and aim to provide a sustainable future for Wimbledon Town Centre” – Helen Clark Bell, CEO of Love Wimbledon BID

A big thank you to our businesses, as well as the wider community of residents, visitors and users of Wimbledon Town Centre, who have also shown us great support over the last few years. Together we make our town even better.

Our ambition is for Wimbledon to be an evolving town centre where businesses thrive, people visit and communities engage. To do this, we will:

  • Create Better Places, Spaces and Experience
  • Promote and Support Business
  • Become Greener and More Sustainable

Love Wimbledon Business Improvement District was set up in 2012 and our third term will begin in April 2022.
