This project focused on developing a Town Improvement Zone (TIZ) proposal that would enable Wimbledon Town Centre to increase its competitiveness and enhance its character and diversity. The success of Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in revitalizing cities in the United States prompted the Merton Council to consider designating Wimbledon as a pilot TIZ. The proposal focused on applying the lessons learned from the BID experience when designing a sustainable financial and management strategy for a TIZ in Wimbledon Town Centre.
