Ambitious Knightsbridge & Brompton Road Business Plan launched

The Brompton Road Partnership (now Knightsbridge Partnership) has published an ambitious Business Plan for the proposed Brompton Road BID with a £6 million, five-year programme of improvements for the Brompton Road district. See the Brompton Road Business Plan.

The Plan includes immediate measures to help restart the local economy after the impact of COVID-19 together with proposals to secure its long-term, sustainable growth.

Our Five Pillars for Recovery and Sustainable Growth

The Plan has five interconnected pillars of activities -

  • 1. Supporting COVID-19 Recovery
    Providing district-wide business support and promoting a clear vision for the district’s long-term future.

  • 2. Harnessing the Power of Partnership
    Building strong partnerships with Westminster City Council, RB Kensington and Chelsea, Transport for London, the police, the Mayor and local communities to deliver real changes to improve the district.

  • 3. Leveraging the benefits of our International Centre designation
    Promoting the importance of the International Centre to the economies, jobs provision and global appeal of London and the wider UK.

  • 4. Driving transformational change
    Working with partners to deliver improvements to the public realm, traffic management and street services, making the district a more pleasant and welcoming place for everyone.

  • 5. Providing business support and insight
    Creating a range of services to help business planning and growth, including regular policy and operational updates and insights into business performance in the district and throughout wider central London.
