BID Ballot 2019 – how it worked

Persons eligible to vote in the ballot were the non-domestic ratepayer listed on the Council’s database for each hereditament (business premise) situated in the geographical area of the proposed BID as at the date of the Notice of Ballot (17th December 2018). Each person entitled to vote in the ballot had one vote in respect of each hereditament occupied or (if unoccupied) owned by them in the geographical area of the proposed BID.

For the BID Ballot to be successful there had to be:

  1. A majority in favour of the BID in the number of those voting; and
  2. A majority in favour of the BID in the proportion of rateable value of those voting.

The ballot was conducted entirely by post by the Independent Scrutineer, Electoral Reform Services of 33 Clarendon Road, London N8 0NW.
