A useful toolkit for employers and a showcase of good work practice has been created to extend the legacy of Bromley’s Night Time Enterprise Zone.

The new business support is a further boost to Bromley Town Centre following the successful BR1 Lates events programme, which is drawing new visitors to the high street this year. Events like Library Lates have seen thousands come together for enjoyable evenings out, with this programme and related high street improvements being thanks to Bromley’s selection as one of London’s Night Time Enterprise Zones, funded by the Mayor of London.

Employers can now find helpful advice in the Bromley Business Night Time Toolkit, with support for businesses setting up, operating and trading in Bromley into the evening. Useful guidance covers topics such as networking, licensing, safety, inclusion, sustainability, and more.

‘Good Work Bromley’ is a further project showcasing best employment practices and guidance for operation in Bromley, with links to many local and national resources and support that can provide numerous benefits to both employees and employers.

Councillor Yvonne Bear, Executive Councillor for Renewal, Recreation and Housing said: “It has been very heartening to see our local community and businesses come together to help deliver our vision for the town centre. Recent events have brought an incredible atmosphere to our thriving high street, creating experiences to remember. This new business support really helps to cement this legacy and ensures businesses can get the information they need to join in the growing success of our night time economy.”

The Bromley Business Night Time toolkit was created in collaboration with various partners. The toolkit is available on the Bromley Business Hub website.

The ‘Good Work Bromley’ guidance can also be found on the Bromley Business Hub website.
