The Hammersmith Business Improvement District is seeking re-election, as it has to every five years. All businesses within the BID area will decide if they want the organisation to continue its work around Hammersmith town centre. The BID has consulted with those businesses and published a business plan.
The BID has already been re-elected twice, in 2011 and 2016. This time it is promising a suite of continued and new project areas under three main headings; Public Realm and Green Investment; Security and Resilience; and Community and Partnerships.
The plan promises to invest in green infrastructure whilst supporting and lobbying for further improvements to the public realm. They plan to continue their security initiatives and include new safety priorities, primarily around public health concerns and visitor confidence. Managing crowds, social distancing, and cleanliness in the town centre will be more important than ever to build up reassurance. They also promise to continue to develop partnerships where possible, deliver a varied events programme and build on existing connections, while marketing Hammersmith as a business destination to a broad audience.
