Morning

Is setting up Creative / Cultural Enterprise Zones on the agenda again?
Helen Clark Bell
01:05:54
Following on from Nadia's question, can I please implore GLA to engage with all BIDs directly, not just rely on the local authorities to do this.
Zoe Carr
01:06:52
Helen, you beat me to it. I work for 2 small BIDs and we are almost at the mercy of what the LA wants to do
Zoe Carr
01:08:02
Its great to hear about all the things going on but as BIDs we have to go through a middle person
Helen Clark Bell
01:09:33
For example - can we please do a London BIDs summit every quarter? we are 60 key delivery partners; flexible and innovative with excellent local connections and visions for our specific areas but often engaged too late to maximise our participation.
Helen Clark Bell
01:09:55
We can't see all questions either. Thx
Zoe Carr
01:10:43
more direct engagement would be brilliant,
Lucia Masundire - GLA
01:10:49
Can people responding to questions make sure they've selected to 'All panelists and attendees' otherwise only panelists can see the responses
Helen Clark Bell
01:11:28
Please insist on including BIDs in meetings about our areas.
Nick Mallett
01:11:50
Hear, hear to Helen and Zoe, from Sutton. [No criticism of Sutton LB, by the way, but they're ridiculously stretched]
Midtown BID
01:12:12
Could we get a high level organogram of the mayors office so we can be sure we are contacting the correct office?
Ilker Dervish
01:12:15
Sorry Ben, There is little evidence that this Mayor actually engages with BIDs (especially those from the industrial sector)
Helen Clark Bell
01:12:23
Partnership!! is the way we can come out of this together - sorry rant over!
Zoe Carr
01:12:26
Nick, same in Bromley, the BID managers are actually supporitng the creation of a regen strategy

01:13:06
Probably an enhanced case for BIDs to talk to BIDs!
Zoe Carr
01:13:20
The officers are really good but as you say, massively stretched
Kay Buxton
01:13:24
Thank you Simon!
Nic.Durston
01:13:49
Yes, good luck all those in ballots...!
Jeremy Skinner
01:14:07
And finally a link to Talk London which I mentioned a few times... https://www.london.gov.uk/talk-london/

Not quite finally....An overview of the recovery programme https://www.london.gov.uk/coronavirus/londons-recovery-coronavirus-crisis
Ben Johnson
01:15:13
I'm very happy and keen to take on board the points being made about the need for more, direct communication between the GLA and BIDS. Practical suggestions on what would work best and be most useful are most welcome (noting the suggestion already made of quarterly events like this).

Ros Morgan
01:21:32
BIDs received financial support from Gov’t, this financial year, which was hugely welcome and critical to the survival of the industry. Could the GLA, BF, BB and ATCM join forces, once again, to advocate the same for this coming financial year?
Ben Johnson
01:25:17
Ros - absolutely, from our end
Jude Hassall GLA
01:29:23
Anecdotally we hear that peoples confidence in terms of going out at night and alone has dropped, empty streets and transport have raised peoples fear and nervousness, how do we tackle this to bring confidence back to London's communities and individuals.
Helen Clark Bell
01:32:48
@Ros - completely agree
Ros Morgan
01:39:14
Amy thank you - really excellent presentation
Zoe Carr
01:40:28
great presentation thank you, Beckenham BID used to have a very lively nightime economy some businesses have now gone and we hope our bars and restaurants can hang on, somehow.
Helen Clark Bell
01:40:31
@Amy - very inspiring thank you. Major concern about planning regs affecting numbers of residents in town centres potentially bringing the conflict of business living cheek by jowl with NTE. I presume you are lobbying extensively against these changes.
Ros Morgan
01:41:35
Amy how do we get the LA involved in developing or refreshing their NTE strategies to reflect all the great points you raise.
Nic.Durston
01:41:40
Great presentation Amy. Re the point made about Government support, the British BIDs Advisory Board (which I chair) has discussed a similar package of support for BIDs in 2021/22. British BIDs, BID Foundation and ATCM worked very effectively on this and we should do so again. Nic (nic.durston@southbanklondon.com)
Roz Lloyd-Williams
01:42:12
Amy - many thanks for your mention of the weekend road closure in Northcote Road during July-Oct last year- within our Clapham Junction BID - it was a really successful initiative for our businesses.
Nick Mallett
01:42:36
Business Interruption Policies - the decision was that some calims win, some don't. Depends upon the terms.
Ilker Dervish
01:42:47
Agree 100% Colin
Helen Clark Bell
01:45:36
The Auckland story is a curious one as NZ have not had social distancing, wearing masks is not a 'thing' - yes they had dramatic lockdowns but they were very shortlived!
Ros Morgan
01:45:50
Would be really interested to hear more about the NTE zones.
Culture Team Invitation
01:46:45
@Ros you can read more about the NTEZ pilot project in Walthamstow here: https://www.london.gov.uk/what-we-do/arts-and-culture/24-hour-london/night-time-enterprise-zone
Culture Team Invitation
01:47:05
Including the report on findings and recommendations

If anyone would like to get in touch with the 24 Hour London Team, you can do so at night@london.gov.uk
Ros Morgan
01:48:09
Great work Amy - perhaps we need a BIDs Czar : )
Nadia Broccardo
01:48:31
We do need to note that the vast majority of BIDs around the country have not discounted levy and we have actually been advised by our membership bodies not to do this.
Helen Clark Bell
01:48:42
Yes @Ros - Can Amy take this on too?!!
Helen Clark Bell
01:50:15
@Nadia - agree - an inconsistent approach is causing difficult communications with multiples and is in danger of splitting the industry. Our BID levy rules do now allow for this...
Helen Clark Bell
01:54:09
*not allow - sorry
Chris Travers
01:58:05
@Nadia @Helen - yes, absolutely.
Midtown BID
01:58:58
Incredibly useful information!
Helen Clark Bell
01:59:11
@paul - really excited by this. Any transport data? and can this include stats from TfL as well as South West Rail?Thx
Nicola Grant
01:59:17
Is this data available to us as BIDS? will you share your slides paul?
Helen
01:59:30
Excellent presentations - incredibly useful and relevant.Thank you. Will we have access to view/manipulate the Mastercard/O2 data in the datastore?
Ros Morgan
02:00:04
Excellent Paul thank you - how do we access?
Penny
02:00:11
To Paul: Do you have a timeframe for when the new seamless data experience will be available and will we be able to manipulate it? It will be hugely helpful
Paul Hodgson
02:07:18
thanks for your questions about the Data service. For now please contact your Borough as they are all able to access the data. We are working on how to open it up the BIDs. We are setting up a blog on the London DataStore for updates and a weekly email newsletter for new data, data updates or new analysis which you are very welcome to sign up to
Val Beirne
02:08:23
Thanks Paul - is there a list of Borough contacts that can be shared?
Helen Clark Bell
02:08:45
Thanks @Paul - who would be the lead in the LA - can we not be given access in the same way? rather than trying to track down the right person and then have the discussion with them?
Kristy Sandino, GLA
02:09:11
Great to see interest in the High Streets Data work. We are working closely with Boroughs/LAs at the moment (so as Paul notes - pls contact them) and working on the best way to form a longer-term partnership to analyse & use the data most effectively, including possible costs & structures etc as the initial data purchases were for a certain amount of time. We know BIDs are pivotal to this as well (and great to hear some of you think it will be useful).
Nicola Grant
02:11:43
@Robin - do you know whether Police will vote in BID ballot. If so who has this responsibility?
Kristy Sandino, GLA
02:11:44
There are data sharing agreements etc that come into play so it's not as simple I'm afraid as being given access right away.
Simon Pitkeathley
02:11:48
@robin do you see any possibility of a return of the BOGOF deal on officers?
Helen Clark Bell
02:11:49
This is an example of where BIDs are clearly not considered as strong and trusted partners directly but being referred back to our LAs....this is not constructive partnership!
Nicola Grant
02:14:49
thanks @Robin
Robin Merrett
02:15:51
@Simon,
Helen Clark Bell
02:16:03
Thanks @Ben - we have been asking for this for quite some time! it used to happen....
Val Beirne
02:16:07
There used to be strategic BID meetings with TfL which would be good to pick up again if possible.
Robin Merrett
02:16:20
I have heard little said about BOGOF being reintroduced.
Ilker Dervish
02:17:15
Agreed regarding the TfL comment, They are a major player but will not engage
Helen
02:17:20
Thanks so much and sorry to not be networking with all these colleagues.
Helen Clark Bell
02:17:39
Thanks @Ben - an organisation chart of key contacts would be really helpful - knowing who to contact is key!
Ros Morgan
02:17:50
Thank you
