Bankside 2020-25 - Shaping our neighbourhood together

VOTE YES for another five years of Better Bankside

Bankside is a world class neighbourhood with a special character. Over the past fifteen years we have worked hard to shape our district, making Bankside a place where people are proud to work and want to spend time, and growing Bankside's reputation as a place to invest.

Every five years we ballot businesses to make sure they want Better Bankside to continue. At out last ballot in 2014, 88% of businesses voted yes. We are counting on your support in our fourth ballot this November. Working closely with the business community we have co-created a five year proposal for Bankside that will benefit the whole neighbourhood and beyond. Download our proposal on this page and find out more about the ballot process. 

The Better Bankside team will be in touch with Bankside businesses to set up meetings to discuss the proposal, but if you have any questions please do get in touch at info [at]
