Water under the Bridge

— 1 March 2017

After 11 years, James Dinwiddie has stepped down as Chair of Team London Bridge (TLB), the Business Improvement District (BID) covering the area between London Bridge and Tower Bridge and extending southwards to include Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospital.  James has served as Chair since the BID was formed in 2006 and has handed over the role to Professor Simon Howell, Director of Academic Estates Strategy, Health Facilities at King’s College London.  At the AGM on 1 March 2017, James reflected on the changes in the area since the inception of the BID,

‘I am immensely proud to have been Chair of Team London Bridge for the past 11 years. It has been a remarkable period of change, with the completion of More London, the rise of The Shard, and the redevelopment of London Bridge station.  The area has been transformed and our business community has evolved with it.  TLB offers members a say in all of this, and the services we have provided since 2006 have used this momentum to deliver tangible improvements and benefits to local businesses.  The London Bridge BID was one of the first BIDs to be set up in London.  Now in its third term, Team London Bridge is firmly established as an energetic and effective driving force in the local community and is highly respected as one of the finest BIDs in the country.’

Nadia Broccardo, TLB Chief Executive, thanked James for his contribution over the past 11 years, and welcomed Simon to the Board, saying.

James’ contribution… has gone beyond that expected of a Chair.  His passion for the area has helped drive projects through and his expertise has allowed our dedicated Board to develop as the organisation’s focus evolved over the years.  We welcome Simon to the role and look forward to strengthening our links to the hugely important King’s College London, Guy’s Campus.  His wealth of experience will bring a new dynamic to the Board and the executive team is keen to seek his involvement in the many exciting projects to be delivered as part of the London Bridge Plan.’
