What is a BID?

What is a BID
 

With a number of new developments completed, planned or underway, the Northbank is once again becoming the destination of choice in central London.

With an attractive offer to encourage small businesses to locate on the Northbank alongside high profile multinational organisations due to competitive rates for business start-ups, the area is an excellent blend of old and new. The area’s connectivity with Greater London and the rest of the UK via six Tube lines, Charing Cross and an array of bus routes, brings mass appeal. Pedestrian traffic is set to be further serviced by the impending Garden Bridge which will directly link the Northbank and South Bank, changing how people move between Waterloo and the City.

BID’s have numerous advantages for the areas in which they operate:

These include:

  • Economic growth and investment
  • Improved social well being for employees and residents
  • Improved public realm through sustainable investment for capital projects and services.

The BID’s provide a voice for local businesses to create a more appealing environment, reduce crime, promote and market the area.

On 30th July 2013 The Northbank BID was successful with a 46% turn-out 80% voted in favour, 92% in aggregate rateable value (RV).
