What is a BID?
South Bank Employer's Group was established in 1991 to coordinate and deliver many of the improvements and initiatives that have made South Bank the vibrant and exciting place that it is today. In 2013, SBEG proposed the establishment of a Business Improvement District (BID), as an additional way to engage businesses and employers in the next phase of the area's growth and development.
Following a successful ballot of local businesses, South Bank BID was set up in late 2014. It is funded through a levy arrangement and is governed by a Board whose members are drawn from the local business community. SBEG is the delivery agent for South Bank BID, and ensures that local services are coordinated and joined up to maximise benefits to all businesses in South Bank.
From marketing South Bank as London's leading visitor destination to coordinating schemes that make it cleaner, safe and more accessible to all, South Bank BID builds on what's been achieved to date.
