The Partnerships and Engagement team helps businesses, developers and occupiers to build, occupy and operate in the Square Mile.

Our remit also extends to the wider built environment by supporting our four Business Improvement Districts and maximising the use of the Community Infrastructure Levy.  We also work closely with the Planning team to enhance planning processes and to influence Planning policy.

  • Undertaking contact programmes with businesses and the property industry - providing assistance to occupational premises and the wider built environment.
  • promoting the City as a location to do business including running the City Centre and developing marketing strategies to engage with businesses and workers
  •  Supporting the delivery of the City's four business improvement districts
