An Area Under Pressure

Running from Blackfriars Bridge to Lambeth Bridge, the world-famous South Bank is one of London’s great success stories. In 2000 the South Bank riverside received 3 million visitors a year, but in 2013 that figure was estimated to be 25 million.

Whilst this is all part of the South Bank success story, large numbers of visitors create problems of litter, illegal trading, begging and other anti-social behaviour.

Despite its economic success, the neighbourhood suffers from serious underinvestment in public realm management and maintenance, a situation likely to be exacerbated as local authority expenditure comes under even more pressure.

At the same time competing destinations in London are moving ahead in terms of regeneration and may take visitors from the South Bank if area promotion is not stepped up. There is also a need to maintain the best possible business environment to nurture business growth outside the tourist sector. The South Bank BID seeks to address these threats and opportunities to create an even more prosperous future for business in the South Bank.
