Savills Place has been appointed to develop a BID in West Wickham following a feasibility study undertaken during October 2018. 

In 2018, Savills Place developed BIDs in the Borough for both Beckenham and Penge and developed a BID for Bromley in 2016.

The Savills Place-Shaping & Marketing team will now focus on developing a formal BID Steering Group to build on the engagement already undertaken and identify key themes for a compelling 5-year business plan.

Commenting on the appointment, Fiona Wright, director at Savills said "We are really happy to be able to develop a BID for West Wickham. Having built strong relationships with London Borough of Bromley over the years, our team are excited to move forward and continue working in the area.”

Lorraine McQuillan, Town Centres & BID Development Manager added "We are pleased to appoint Savills Place-Shaping & Marketing to develop a BID for West Wickham which could help improve the town. As part of the selection process, Savills Place-Shaping & Marketing successfully demonstrated the experience and professional capacity to progress West Wickham to the next stage of the BID process, which is the most important part as they will be working directly with businesses, outlining what is involved in a BID and understanding the business community’s priorities. Savills Place-Shaping & Marketing advised us on Bromley, Beckenham and Penge most successfully so we were very happy to appoint them again for West Wickham. Savills Place-Shaping & Marketing will naturally be listening very carefully to feedback as part of developing a BID proposal for West Wickham, with businesses having the final say via a ballot."
