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.
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.
