Advice and resources

Flood, Fire, Terrorist threat, Vandalism - Better Bankside will, to the best of our ability, assist you to get back up and running if a major disturbance occurs to your business.

We are able to:

  • Advise on contact details for useful city and national services
  • Offer pavement clearing and minor debris removal if necessary
  • Provide full promotional support in reannouncing the reopening of your business on Better Bankside website, Twitter, ebrief and facebook channels, if it is necessary for you to shut for any amount of time.

Better Bankside’s Cleaning Team can help to clear and clean the area surrounding your business to help you recover as quickly as possible. They patrol the area daily, but to request their special assistance please ring 020 7928 3998.

Better Bankside Wardens will continue to perform in their usual capacity in the event of a disturbance. This is as an additional resource and liaison point for the police and other emergency services. They can assist in connecting you with the most effective person or service for your need.
