Emphatic ‘Yes’ Vote for a Second Term

 Brixton BID members voted emphatically in favour of a second term. The yes vote means that local businesses have chosen to work together for Brixton and to invest a minimum of £1.75m in projects to improve Brixton until 2023. 

The London Borough of Lambeth declared the successful result on Thursday 1 November 2018. With a turnout of 58.87%, 80.28% of votes were in favour of the continuation of the Brixton BID and 83.76% in favour by rateable value. 

Elly Foster and Laverne Walker, Co-Chairs of the Brixton BID, said: “We are extremely happy to have successfully secured a second term. 

“We believe that this will result in many more improvements for Brixton businesses and will mean that the BID can continue to provide a strong voice, particularly for our small and medium-sized businesses, as we all adjust to a post-Brexit economy.” 

Michael Smith, Director of Brixton BID, said “Our mission to create additional opportunities for everyone carries on. We are extremely pleased with the results; the businesses have given us such a large mandate to celebrate our thriving Brixton’’. 

Cllr Matthew Bennett, Lambeth Council Cabinet Member for Planning, Investment and New Homes, said: “Brixton BID have made a fantastic contribution to local business and work closely with Lambeth Council to keep Brixton a dynamic and diverse town centre. I’m delighted to see them win their renewal ballot with such strong support and I look forward to continuing our strong partnership for Brixton.”
