Quotes from Landlords,
Business Owners and Sponsors
“If we fail to go forward for a further 5 year term as a BID company then all of our time and your financial support along with others will have been wasted and those criminals who have been deterred from coming here will return and we will go back to where we were 10 or 12 years ago in a very short space of time. VOTE ‘YES’ for us to carry on with our work here.”
Mr. Jim Ridley

Re: Witham Industrial Watch Business Improvement District (BID)
“On behalf of the Board of Withal Industrial Watch I write to thank you very much for our recent meeting to discuss the Hainault and Withal Business Improvement Districts. It was very interesting to hear about all the activities that take place on your estate, the improvements that your Member businesses enjoy and your exciting plans for the future.
May we take this opportunity to express our gratitude to you both for encouraging us to pursue BID status in 2009, as this has made very positive difference to Withal’s industrial estates. We are fortunate to be following in your footsteps and we wish you continued success with your BID, particularly your forthcoming renewal.
Kate Carling – Director, Witham Industrial Watch
“Our relationship with Hainault Business Park came about based on a recommendation from one of the business members. As a business operating within a localised industrial area, we could immediately see the benefits of a structured organisation to improve the district. Chris and Jim have been instrumental in making these strides forward and the entire area benefits from their efforts and of course, the efforts of the other local businesses. Having BID status allows all members of HBP to access the kinds of services that they would not normally be able to access or afford; such is the effectiveness of the sponsorship scheme kindly extended to outside organisations.
BID status is not something that is simply owed to a business area, it has to be earned, as does the respect and support of the businesses within it. HBP more than meet these requirements. Whilst I’m sure there are still many things to do, the area would be a less safe, less welcoming environment without the professionalism and commitment of the HBP management”.
Tony Ridpath Cert CII, Manager, Bond Lovis Insurance Brokers.
“The Council is delighted to continue its support for this worthwhile project which has taken major strides to create a safe and secure trading environment which Redbridge can be proud of. This is an organisation which listens to its membership and uses its influence to create a place where businesses can grow and flourish in our Borough.
Over the years it has given voice to the needs and concerns of a widely varied workforce. They understand the challenges in running a successful business and are very much people focussed, balancing environmental and security issues with the welfare of the people who work on ’ their’ site. Their loyalty and hard work on behalf of those they represent is commendable and the Hainault BID is highly respected within the industry which reflects well on all of us.”
Cllr Jas Athwal, Leader of the Council, London Borough of Redbridge.
“It seems an age since my first visit to the Hainault Business Park in 2001 to see a Client. I was worried that my car may not be where I left it when I returned. I was very pleased to be offered the chance to support, physically and financially, the management of the Business Park in 2004 and the subsequent application to seek BID approval.
The work taken on and delivered by Chris, Jim, LB Redbridge, the Police and the rest of the management team has been nothing short of stunning. The Business Park is almost unrecognisable to the one I first saw 14 years ago.
Hainault has blazed a trail for other Business Parks and shown them “what good/great looks like. Now when I visit the Business Park my only concern is where to park as it is always so crowded with so many vibrant businesses now operating on the Park.
I was delighted to support the initial efforts to improve the Park, the first and subsequent BID applications and have no hesitation in offering my support for the 2016 BID Renewal.”
Adrian wood, Relationship Director, NatWest Commercial & Private Banking.
“The BT Local Business team are excited about being part of the Hainault Business Park BID proposal, we have worked with a large number of businesses on the park and view ourselves as a partner that brings ideas and new ways of working using the latest technology available from BT. It has been very exciting watching the park evolve and to be part of that is something that we are very proud of.”
Graham Wilson, Managing Director, BT Local Business.
Having several factories on the Hainault Business Park Faulkner Bradley Ltd strongly supports the new BID proposal.
“We used to have problems at all our units with burglary and petty crime but with the measures brought in by the Hainault Business Partnership this has now virtually stopped. We also appreciate the cleaning up of the Park, the associated website, organised networking and more clear signage which has generally meant that our units have let more easily, bringing more employment to the area. There still remains the problems of parking but we hope the continuance of the partnership will enable these issues to be tackled.”
Ken Faulkner, Managing Director, Faulkner Bradley Ltd.
“As the local Neighbourhood Inspector for Hainault ward I would like to express my support for the renewal. I feel that it is imperative that the valuable work you are doing continues together with the partnership work conducted with Redbridge police and the London Borough of Redbridge council.
The systems of information sharing have been effective in reducing business crime, whilst enabling the prompt tackling of appropriate issues on the Hainault Business Park (HBP).
The introduction of Automatic number plate readers as a result of the BID has acted as a deterrent to criminals in addition to providing a valuable source of evidence to police conducting investigations.
I look forward to further partnership working in order to continue to make the HBP a more difficult place to commit crime.”
Lee Canter, Safer Neighbourhood Inspector, Redbridge.
“The BID is singularly the most important development for Fowler Road in recent years. The management have transformed a run-down Industrial Estate into a thriving Business Park. Occupiers that would have chosen alternative locations now want to operate from the Park in what has become a clean, secure, safe and well managed business environment with a feeling of community from Occupiers. I must say that Jim and Chris have been absolutely fantastic in their exemplary devotion and efforts in making this business Park the success it now is.”
David Sanders, D B Investments.
“We are very pleased to be sponsors of the Hainault BID and have been involved for many years. We regularly attend the breakfast meetings and are always impressed with the level of turn out and the range of businesses represented. During our involvement, we have noticed significant improvements to the Hainault Industrial Estates in terms of communication and on-site security; making it an attractive place to work. We continue to act for a number of occupiers in terms of sales, lettings, development valuation, Landlord and Tenant and property management; and always give BID members a discount on our usual fees”.
