I don't know who to lobby , but I'd have thought the answer would be for London Dungeon
and other property owners/occupiers on the east side of Borough High Street
to become part of the Better Bankside
business improvement district, and use this as a means to pay for additional bins/sweeping as seen around the Tate and Borough Market
The current arbitrary boundary for the BID
along the middle of the Borough High Street
appears to have arisen because all points east were part of the separate Pool of London Partnership regeneration initiatives, and the two schemes were trying not to overlap. However, PLP has a limited lifespan.
I cannot see how its possible to operate in this way for the longer term - the issues of bringing Borough High Street
's shops back to life, the pedestrian approaches to London Bridge Station
and the stresses caused by the increase in riverside tourist attractions have to be looked at all together.
