BID Ballot

BID ballots will be issued from 21 September 2021 and voting will close at the end of the day on 21 October 2021. Business rate payers valued at £15,000 and above in the BID area have a vote on the proposals. The BID period will last no longer than five years, if adopted.

Here’s how the ballot will work:

  • Eligible businesses will receive a copy of the Business Plan and a ballot vote in the post.
  • The voting period starts from 21 September 2021 when ballots are issued and closes at the end of the day on 21 October 2021.
  • Businesses must vote ‘YES’ or ‘NO’ on whether Peterborough should adopt the BID.
  • The outcome of the vote is based on a Dual Key Majority – receiving more ‘YES’ votes than ‘NO’ votes and within the ‘YES’, more rateable value than in the ‘NO’ votes.
  • We need your ‘YES’ votes to adopt the BID and help Peterborough build back better!
