What We Do
Our aim is to enhance and manage the area for the benefit of everyone working here, living locally and visiting. We are striving for an area that is compelling, inclusive, progressive and exceptional. We are placing sustainability at the heart of our ambition with delivery focused on people’s health and wellbeing, supporting those in need, delivering social value and benefitting the local and global environment.
The Baker Street Quarter Partnership was established in 2013 as a Business Improvement District (BID) – a not-for-profit company funded and directed by local businesses for the benefit of the broader community of the Baker Street and Marylebone area.
Our mandate was renewed in November 2022, with an 80% turnout and 99% approval of businesses by both number and value. This ballot also secured an extension of our area of work north to encompass Marylebone Station, building a connection to new businesses, providing focus on this key gateway to the area and bringing us closer to the focus of our Smarter Giving programme.
Our projects and initiatives are divided into the following five areas. You can get involved in the delivery of these by joining one of our steering groups – Streets & Spaces, Vibrancy & Community, and Sustainability. Get in touch to find out more about how to get involved.
Progressive and High Quality Environment
Creating a compelling and inclusive place that supports wellbeing and has sustainability at its heart with informed place-shaping projects.
