South Bank BID is responsible for many of the area’s on-the-ground and long-term place making initiatives, to ensure that the surrounding environment for everyone who works, lives and visits here reflects the area’s world-class reputation.
South Bank Clean Team
The South Bank Clean Team service provides
additional cleansing and graffiti removal to the South Bank area, providing a
flexible, responsive service where it is needed. This ensures South Bank 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.
The Clean Team service operates seven days a week, to ensure the public spaces of South Bank and Waterloo are kept clean and tidy and aims to ensure all graffiti in the area is removed within twenty four working hours (or four hours if offensive).
The Clean Team service also undertakes pavement jet washing, reporting abandoned bikes to be removed and gritting during the winter months, as well as a variety of other jobs in the area, including polishing street furniture, weeding and clearing landscaped borders, putting up posters and maintaining signage.
Construction Coordination Group
For its second term, South Bank BID will be funding and appointing a dedicated Construction Coordinator, on secondment from Lambeth Council, who will be responsible for working with all the major developers operating in South Bank in a period which will see significant transformation across South Bank’s buildings and public realm areas.
As well as working to minimise disruption, through planning and coordination, this resource, through South Bank BID communication channels, will provide levy payers with detailed and up-to-date information on work planned and potential impacts. This will enable businesses to plan accordingly, to minimise disruption to their employees and customers.
