Street services to improve the experience in the area.
Creating a high-quality public realm and environment has been a priority of The Northbank BID since its inception. The BID works collaboratively, to develop projects which boost the local economy, enhance the heritage and support the local community.
We work closely with asset managers, Westminster City Council, GLA, Transport for London and property owners to bring investment for local area enhancement. We provide a cohesive approach linking day to day area management and cleaning, designing out problem areas to strategic enhancement to support the area development pipeline.
We provide a collective strategic voice for local businesses for area, local authority and city consultations and policy.
We know that people are attracted to clean, green areas for business and leisure, so to enhance The Northbank’s Public Realm reputation we are carrying out daily cleaning and reporting.
The team works to enhance Westminster’s capabilities by providing more targeted street cleaning and additional services like chewing gum and graffiti removal, and jet washing. The Northbank Ambassadors also carry out reporting of street maintenance issues to Westminster and TfL.Contact our street team
To help encourage people use the Clean Air Routes, we will be installing planting at key locations to help improve biodiversity, as well as making these areas more attractive and enticing routes to be used by pedestrians and cyclists.
