Manor Royal BID Ballot now Open
Businesses entitled to vote in the BID Renewal Ballot should now have their ballot papers and can vote. All businesses responsible for a property of £12,000 rateable value or more located in the proposed BID area are entitled to vote in the postal ballot and have until 5pm on 1st March to return their ballot paper.
The ballot paper has been issued by the Crawley Borough Council Electoral Services Team, who ensure the ballot is conducted in accordance with the BID Regulations. It will arrive in a specially marked envelope (see this example) and the ballot paper itself has been printed on yellow paper.
There are two boxes on the ballot paper asking you to either vote “YES” to renew the Manor Royal BID or “NO” to not renew the BID, in which case the BID will be closed, the projects and services it delivers will stop, anything for which the BID is responsible (e.g. the signs, security cameras and parks) will be removed and the proposed BID Business Plan will not be delivered.
If you think you are entitled to vote but cannot find your ballot paper, or if you have any questions about the BID or the Ballot, please contact the BID Office.
To view the Manor Royal BID (2018-2023) Business Plan, please visit the Manor Royal BID Renewal pages here.
The outcome of the Ballot will be announced on 2nd March 2018
