Next steps

Businesses will be asked to vote in summer 2018 in a confidential democratic ballot. Prior to this we will seek to engage with every business in the proposed BID area to hear their views and what their priorities are.

The BID Proposal sets out the priorities for the area and how this can be funded by a small levy on businesses.   We know that with recent increases in business rates, bills are high enough already, and so a key part of our proposal is to help businesses reduce core costs by bulk buying services such as recycling and utilities.

A copy of the BID proposal will be sent to all voters prior to the ballot papers being sent.
