The Renewed Occupier & Property Business Improvement District (BID) levy will be established if a number of qualifying hereditaments of occupiers and property owners in a geographical given area, who are eligible to vote on the Proposal, vote in its favour.

The ballot process is governed by Government legislation and regulations. As such, once a majority vote has been achieved in both value and the number of votes cast in the renewal ballot, the BID levy becomes mandatory on all eligible occupiers (retail, hotel & leisure) and property owners in the defined district.

All eligible occupiers and owners will be entitled to one voter per hereditament. Some occupiers and owners with more the one hereditament within the area will, therefore, be entitled to more than one vote.

schedule a virtual meeting to discuss our future business
proposal and renewal mandate process in more detail.
