Company Structure

The Brompton Road BID will provide an effective organisational model which brings together the business community, both occupiers and owners, together with the statutory authorities and wider community, to work together for the benefit of Knightsbridge and the Brompton Road.

The Brompton Road BID will be a company limited by guarantee and the legal entity that will run the activities of the business improvement district following its establishment. The BID will have two categories of membership:

  • BID Levy papers – commercial occupiers liable to pay the BID levy
  • Voluntary members – businesses / organisations that are not BID levy payers approved by the BID Board

The nomination of voluntary members will be supported by either an annual financial contribution (cash or in-kind) or their strategic importance to the delivery of the BID’s business objectives. Key groups will include property owners, smaller businesses that fall below the threshold of rateable value and businesses outside of the BID’s geographic boundary.

Organisation Structure

A Board of Directors will lead and guide the work of the BID. The Board will have the appropriate balance of skills, experience, independence and knowledge to enable them to discharge their respective duties and responsibilities effectively. It will seek diversity and ensure a representative mix of its membership, the property sector and wider community.

The Board will meet quarterly and drive the set aims and objectives of the BID, as well as maintaining good governance, overseeing the budget and monitoring performance. The Board will consist of between 12 -16 non-Executive Directors including the Chair. Directors will be appointed by the Board subject to ratification by the BID members at annual meetings of the company.

To help guide the BID in this pursuit Board sub-groups may be set up to encourage participation and help to add value to the decision making of the BID.
