Westminster City Council has today (23/02/18) announced the result of The Northbank Business Improvement District renewal ballot.
94% of the levy-paying community voted in favour of the Northbank BID’s next five year term (2018-2023), totalling 98% by aggregate RV. This result provides an overwhelming mandate for the BID to continue delivering real improvements for the Northbank area.
Ruth Duston, Chief Executive of The Northbank BID said, “We are delighted by this strong show of support from the business community, which not only demonstrates a vote of confidence in the work that we do and our ambitious programme for 2018-2023 but means that the Northbank can continue to be part of the BID success story. We’ve made significant progress in our first term, not least generating an additional £1million for the area, but there is still much to do. As well as delivering on our public realm vision, we will continue to work with the Mayor of London’s team to help tackle air pollution in central London – a key priority for the capital. Our ultimate goal remains transforming the Northbank into London’s most dynamic and vibrant quarter for all who work, visit and live in the area and we look forward to working collaboratively with our partners to continue to bring positive change to this strategically important district.”
Matthew Dixon, Chairman of The Northbank BID and Commercial Director of Corinthia Hotels, said, “I’d like to thank each and every one of our members for helping us to reach this significant milestone for the BID. Much of our success is down to the strong collaborative spirit between the BID, our partners and the local community and your continued support makes our important mission possible. Public-private partnerships such as BIDs are essential to ensure that London remains a leading global destination and over the next five years, we will do all we can to continue to champion local initiatives and investment in local infrastructure to help unlock growth across the capital and bring benefits to the whole community. The Northbank already has so much to be proud of and together, we will work towards a better and brighter future for this vibrant part of central London.”
The BID Executive and Street teams value your continued support and look forward to a prosperous five years ahead.
