Public Realm is a fundamental area of activity for the Northbank. With the opportunity to work in partnership with the public service providers, the BID has ring-fenced a specific budget that has enabled it to “buy-in” specific expertise to take its cleansing plans forward. This required the commissioning of a dedicated cleansing service which is able to respond to priority areas identified by the BID, in a flexible, timely manner and which will be in addition to the baseline services provided by Westminster City Council.

We have recently awarded the contract to Citrica, who are well placed to meet all the requirements of the contract and business needs. They will be carrying out additional day and night cleaning on our key public realm areas:-

  • Deep cleaning – pavements/bricks/concrete/stone/granite, litter picking and graffiti removal
  • Chewing gum removal
  • Algae/moss/vegetation removal
  • Urination wet-spots treatments
  • Litter picking as required
  • Dealing with sharps and needles
  • Homeless problems

Citrica has also employed a dedicated Environmental Manager to monitor key performance indicators and work with us to monitor the contract. Iin addition all staff uniforms, equipment and vehicles will be fully branded with The Northbank logo.

This additional service will be in place at the end of February 2014, and we look forward to seeing a better quality of street cleansing throughout the BID area.
