Angel AIM is an independent business-led limited company dedicated to improving the quality of the Angel. In 2007, local businesses voted overwhelmingly to establish a business improvement district (BID) to improve their trading environment.
Local businesses pay a levy of 1% of their rateable value to Angel AIM. In return, they have a say in choosing services for the area which currently includes free recycling, the nine-officer Angel Police Team on duty 8am-8pm every day, extra jet-washing and street sweeping, improved pedestrian crossings and pavements, Christmas lights and hanging flower baskets.
Close partnership working with Islington Council has enabled Angel AIM to develop their CCTV programme, tackle town centre crime and make the Angel safer, cleaner and brighter for everyone who visits, lives and works there.
