Bayswater Village Business Improvement District (BID) came to the end of its term as of
31st December 2014.

If you are a resident or visitor to Bayswater, there continues to be an exciting mix of places to shop, visit and stay. With the world's cuisine on offer, alongside some of London's finest shopping in a culturally vibrant setting, there's truly something for everyone. If you are a local business, we hope that the BID's services were useful to you and that you feel Bayswater remains a good place to run a business.

 

WOULD YOU LIKE TO STAY INVOLVED?


Local businesses have expressed an interest in continuing to meet to discuss matters of mutual concern and to create networking opportunities. This is the perfect time to voice your views! Please contact Eleanor Leone (eleanor.leone@themeans.co.uk) to join in the discussion and get involved in business events taking place in your local area.



If you have any questions about the end of the BID services, please see below:

EXTRA POLICING UNTIL 31ST MARCH 2015


Co-funding from Bayswater Village BID means that there will be extra police patrols in place up until the end of March. Two extra officers will be deployed between the hours of
1 - 11pm on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in Lancaster Gate ward.

DEEP CLEANING & GUM REMOVAL


With funding from Bayswater Village BID, Primoserve Environmental carried out gum removal and deep cleaning of Queensway - from Bayswater Road to Westbourne Grove, along Westbourne Grove to Chepstow Place and around the front of the West Bank Gallery.

Primoserve used its newest Primo Vac machines, which use steam, allowing the work to be carried out during the day with no risk to pedestrians, shop fronts, windows and street furniture.

The work was carried out through December and the first week of January, Monday to Friday, avoiding the busier early evenings on Thursdays and Fridays.

The difference was noted by local residents and businesses.

PRIVILEGE CARDS


Approximately 2,000 Privilege Cards are in circulation and being used by local residents, employees and visitors. As the scheme will no longer be managed by the BID, there will be no new cards issued. However, individual businesses may decide to continue offering discounts, if they feel it is beneficial.

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO MY RECYCLING SERVICE?


There were 120 businesses that benefitted from First Mile recycling services, and received an uninterrupted service until 31st December 2014.

• Future orders to be First Mile branded products

All future orders will be First Mile branded sacks and tape, rather than Bayswater Village branded products.

• Future prices and services.

Any orders after 31st December will be direct with First Mile and at their standard Westminster prices.
