Community Safety & Business Resilience

The Northbank is committed to the safety of everyone who lives, works or visits our area. We work with the GLA, Metropolitan Police, Westminster City Council and other partners to reduce crime and anti-social behaviour as well as to minimise the risk from more serious incidents.

Our retail and commercial premises are supported by our regular community forum as well as our professional Street Patrol, free radio network and dedicated information sharing site provided through the Safer Business Network.

The BID is actively engaged with our vibrant evening and night time economy. We work with our bars, theatres, restaurants and hotels to ensure that everyone enjoying our many licensed venues has a great night, safely.

Business continuity is a priority for everyone. The Northbank is committed to building a resilient neighbourhood that is prepared for, and able to respond to, circumstances having a negative effect on daily life.

The Northbank delivers a fantastic programme of free events and seminars, across these themes.

Stay tuned in:

Our Street Patrol team work 7 days a week, from  6.30 am – 11.30 pm providing a responsive service to help tackle low-level crime and anti-social behaviour.

Contact the Northbank on 020 3697 9270 during office hours or ask us about our free Northbank radio network for commercial premises.

 

Business Continuity & Resilience

Through community engagement the Northbank is continually reviewing our collective level of preparedness and this forms the basis of the Northbank’s strategic planning to mitigate risk of serious incident. Along with free counter terrorism awareness seminars, cyber security workshops and promoting the importance of business continuity planning, the Northbank is committed to developing our community-wide response to bolster our capacity to respond and recover.
