Future West End – Businesses share New West End Company vision
Businesses voted to renew New West End Company on Friday 14 December to continue as the management and promotional company for the retail heartland of London’s West End, guaranteeing the area £25 million over the next five years.
The result was a strong endorsement for New West End Company’s future mandate with 85% voting in favour, representing 89% of rateable value on the basis of 47% turnout. This level of support is the highest for a retail-led Business Improvement District in the UK.
New West End Company will bring together the commercial interests of over 600 retailers, property owners and West End businesses working closely with the Mayor of London, Transport for London, Westminster City Council, the Metropolitan Police and local neighbours in a collective vision to drive forward the nation’s retail heartland.
