  • (1888PressRelease) July 06, 2011 - Decentralisation minister Greg Clark spoke to key representatives from the area's business community and resident's associations to launch the new campaign. Having worked within Bankside property for many years, Stirling Ackroyd has witnessed a wealth of local improvements. The team were enthusiastic that the initiative tied into the Government's new Localism Bill will bring even more benefits to local residents.

    The prestigious event was organised by the British Property Federation in conjunction with the British Chamber of Commerce, hosted at the local Blue Fin Building. Both South Bankside and Bankside had previously been named as 'frontunner areas' under the business neighbourhoods program. Bankside has approximately 6,000 residents, plus an estimated annual 6 million visitors. The area has long been characterised by strong ties between various business and community groups, ensuring a strong representation for both 'camps'.

    "Over the years, we have seen Bankside certainly become a mature and thriving community for all those who live and work in it. Bankside property is ideally located, but moreover the local area offers far more than just close proximity to the City. There is a tangible sense of community, with local businesses getting involved to constantly make improvements and keep the local economy buoyant. There are a wealth of things to do and see in Bankside, including of course some of London's most famous cultural attractions and iconic landmarks. And the strength of the local business community helps to give residents some terrific everyday local amenities," said a spokesman from Stirling Ackroyd's Bankside office.

    Minister Greg Clark was keen to promote partnerships between local business and residential communities during his speech. Mr Clark stated that the two communities were inseparable, and praised the business community's contribution to the vibrant "character of this area over the years". Peter Williams, chief executive of Better Bankside spoke of the will to ensure that business and residential interests remain sensitively balanced towards one another. The Bankside Resident's Forum had been elevated to an equal status as that of its business counterparts. Its chairman Julian Cooling spoke positively of the benefits this joint approach will bring when formulating a new plan to improve the whole neighbourhood.

    Other examples of joint community working included discussions on the work of the Bankside Logistics Group to minimise disruption to local residents during the construction of new Bankside property for any purpose. There was also an emphasis on further strong relations between all these parties and the Bankside Open Spaces Trust and anther prominent local resident's community association, the Blackfriars Settlement.
