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 work Mon-Fri between 06:30-23:30 and on Saturdays between 08:30-17:30 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.

We provide free access to our dedicated Northbank DISC site, through the Safer Business Network. Disc is the unique information-sharing system that empowers communities to ‘self-manage’ low-level crime and ASB, and enables police to work with them to deliver a new kind of effective, joined-up community policing.

Sign up to the Northbank’s alerts and Street Bulletin- An update on matters regarding Community Safety, Business Resilience and Street Level Intelligence, as well information on the free training and events run by the Northbank, such as Counter Terrorism seminars.

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.

Community Safety: Evening Night Economy

The Northbank is a fantastically, vibrant night time destination. We work with our bars, theatres, restaurants and hotels to ensure that guests, patrons and visitors have a safe experience whilst enjoying great nights out. From pledging to the principles of Mayor’s Women’s Night Safety Charter, through to delivering a programme of free training the Northbank works to promote welfare and reduce vulnerability across our night footprint.
