North Yorkshire Devolution

 On April 1st 2023, a new North Yorkshire Council will replace the eight current district councils. 

Currently Skipton BID has an Operating Agreement with Craven District Council, which states they are responsible for collecting the BID levy on our behalf and will deliver the BID Ballot. On Wednesday the 8th February 2023 at the Skipton BID Board meeting a Special Resolution was raised, stating the new combined Authority will be collecting the levy from April 2023.

Your next levy bills which will be issued in May 2023 will now be issued and payments collected by North Yorkshire Council on behalf of Skipton BID.



4th Term Ballot 

Skipton BID will shortly be entering the last 12 months of the Third Term, which ends on the 31st March 2024.

We are now planning for the next ballot; we aim to have the 4th Term Ballot in October 2023. Over the coming months there will be a number of consultations taking place to ensure the opinions of the levy payers are considered and included in the new Business Plan for the next 5 year term 2024 – 2029.
