Bedford Town Centre BID – 2015-20

Here is the Declaration of Result for the Bedford Bid Proposal.

 

On 13 August 2014, a proposal from the BedfordBID Company Limited for renewal of a Business Improvement District (BID) for Bedford Town Centre for the period 1 April 2015-31 March 2020 was submitted to the Council.  Having received the proposal, a Ballot must now be held among the business ratepayers in the area of the BID to see whether a majority agree with the proposed renewal.  The Returning Officer for the Ballot is given the title Ballot Holder.  The Ballot of affected business ratepayers will be by post and the Ballot Holder will issue Ballot Papers by 17 September.  Those voting in the Ballot must return their Ballot Paper by 5pm on 16 October. 

The Ballot Holder will conduct the count for the Ballot on 17 October and announce the result.

A BID is currently in place and will remain in place until 31 March 2015.  Details of this BID are available online at www.lovebedford.co.uk. The BedfordBID Company Limited is the company that delivers the current BID.
