In January 2018 the BID levy paying community will have a chance to vote for The Northbank BID to continue driving daily improvements around Trafalgar Square, Strand, Aldwych and surrounding streets. The BID has worked as a catalyst to private-public partnerships, bringing Westminster City Council, Tfl, The Met Police and other key London partners to the forefront of the areas needs and ambitions, creating a direct link with the businesses. Between this partnership effort, the teams on the ground and support from the local community, The Northbank BID has achieved a lot in its first 4.5 years.
In September The BID will publish its BID Proposal for the second term 2018-2023, drawing together how the Executive and Street teams have answered the business community’s key concerns and implementing five years of improvements. Through consultation, here’s what you’ve fedback following the first term of initiatives covering: public realm improvements, street cleaning and reporting, safety and security, marketing and promotion, and corporate social responsibility.
Our current Business Plan 2013-2018 is our mandate which sets out what we are delivering in the BID’s first term. This allowed local businesses to work together in shaping and influencing a programme of physical, social and economic change with full consultation into what businesses wanted to see, the changes that could be made and what we could achieve as a collective.
A breakdown of budgets can be read in the latest Billing Leaflet (2017/18).
