Board Sub Groups

The BID’s seeks to embrace the business and wider community with a programme of work that delivers a district with a strong sense of identity and that is clean and safe for all.

To help guide the BID a number of sector focus groups have been set up to encourage participation and help to add value to the running of the BID.

  • Tottenham Court Road Group (Retail)
  • Charlotte Street Group (Restaurant and Night Time Economy)
  • Office Sector Group
  • Community Group
  • Small Business Group

If you would like to participate in a group that represents your business please contact the team.

Tottenham Court Road Group

The Tottenham Court Road Group aims to listen to the voice of retailers along Tottenham Court Road and the surrounding area, and deliver on projects aimed at driving footfall, supporting the retail calendar, creating a brand identity, and promoting events that we and our members are hosting.

Charlotte Street Group

Charlotte Street and the neighbouring area, plays a leading role in creating the vibrancy that attracts people working and living in the area, alongside a fabulous range of restaurants, and this forum makes sure that their views are represented, whilst we increase awareness of the destination and ensure the quality of the street environment.

Office Sector Group

This group involves the office community on an agenda that includes joint procurement initiatives, building B2B relationships, helping offices to feel safe and secure, supporting improved skill sets, staff benefits and welfare. The group is a platform for servicing common issues, and highlighting offers and events impact the office sector.

Community Group

The Community Group recognises the residents’ inclusive voice within Fitzrovia – therefore, this group is reflective of residential, community groups and third sector interests. This is the group that provides the community with a conduit to business, as well as promoting community issues and events in their own right.

Small Business Group

The Small Business Group is made up of small businesses and independent traders which make up an integral part of Fitzrovia. The group will support a range of projects to benefit the sector, and help to integrate small businesses into the larger business agenda.

The Board sub-groups consist of between 6 and 12 members representative of their particular sector:

  • Membership of the business led sub-groups are invited from the BID constituents and from small business voluntary members;
  • Membership of the Community Group is invited from those organisations advised by the London Borough of Camden.

The Board endeavours to secure members from a combination of large and small businesses within the BID constituency and representation from different sectors within the district;

In addition the following organisations may sit on the Board;

  • London Borough of Camden
  • Metropolitan Police
  • Transport for London

As Observers to the Board, these representatives act in an advisory role and are nominated by their respective organisations;

Quorum is a minimum of three Directors.  BID constituents should always form the majority.
