The most crucial part of the ballot process is ensuring we consult with and listen to feedback from our BID levy payers.

Phase 1 and 2 of our planned consultation were carried out in January and April 2021. The results and outcomes of this are now the key driving force of how we shape the next 5-year business plan and the services we provide including more of a focus on driving footfall and ensuring we achieve a better balance in supporting and promoting all business sectors operating within the BID.
