Cleaning Services – A Safe and Clean Neighbourhood


Regenerating South Bank and keeping it safe and clean is the job of our Public Realm Team. The South Bank is a complex balance between public and private, international and local, business and leisure. We are tasked with creating a world class place in partnership with a variety of stakeholders, a mission which reflects the most fundamental aims of our member organisations and of South Bank BID.

South Bank Patrol provides a presence in public areas, dealing with petty crime, the threat of terrorism and anti-social behaviour. The Patrol Service, working in partnership with statutory agencies, addresses issues arising from street drinking, aggressive begging and rough sleeping. The Patrol Service is at the centre of a network of security information sharing and coordination to make South Bank a safer and more welcoming place to work in and visit.

South Bank Patrol also works to tackle unlicensed street trading in the area. With the help of South Bank BID businesses, we aim to maintain and build on the success the Patrol has had so far. With an effective delivery model, using dedicated enforcement officers from the Patrol team, the secondment of a Lambeth Enforcement Officer and the provision of police officers under a Special Services Agreement with the Metropolitan Police, the team has been successful in securing a high level of prosecutions, largely clearing the area from unlicensed street traders. This is achieved with effective operational support and the ability to provide good quality evidence and statements that lead to prosecutions.

Met Patrol Plus is a new scheme to provide uniformed police officers on a ‘buy one, get one free’ basis to London boroughs and their partners for a minimum of 3 years. The aim is to enhance police visibility in the area, to undertake targeted activity against crime and anti social behaviour and to use the additional police resources to reinforce the contribution made by South Bank Patrol where a full Police presence is required.

The South Bank Clean Team provides additional cleaning services in the South Bank area providing a flexible, responsive service where it is needed. This ensures the area remains clean and free of graffiti to a standard appropriate to the quality and reputation of the area and in the face of ever increasing footfall.
