Since there is no formal register of BIDs in the UK, we must research each BID individually. Some BIDs are hard to find (particularly on estates) so we may still be missing a few.
Many of the details (start date; levy rate, etc.) are based on BIDs' published reports and plans. In a few cases the BID has not formally declared this information and we have to look to other sources (local news) to figure out the details.
