The Board


The Northbank BID Board is a representation of the occupier base in the BID. Each member takes up the post of Director of The BID Company and represents the business community on their behalf. Board Members are re-elected annually at the company AGM. This takes into account business types, sizes and geographical locations.

The Board oversees the strategy and administration and spend of business money, as well as being a ‘champion’ of the local efforts.

The expertise and support of property owners and investors in the area is vital to the partnership. The property owners and investors who contribute financially on a voluntary basis to the BID form the Freeholder Group. This Board focuses on the long term aims for the area and other matters of importance to those with property interests. In particular the group, influences activities that focus on Promoting and Positioning The Northbank and on major public realm activity.

To ensure good information flow and alignment of thinking the Chair of the Freeholders Group will sit as an observer on the BID board and report back on progress of the Freeholders Group on a quarterly basis.

As a proven democratically elected and effective partnership, the BID will achieve sustainable improvements for both business and visitors, at a time when the area is seeing record inward investment and a significant increase in visitor numbers.
