BID Ballot

Using Your Vote

In May, 2021 you will be given the opportunity to vote on this business proposal for the establishment of the Blackpool TBID.

To ensure neutrality, the TBID ballot will be administered by the Blackpool Council's Returning Officer and Electoral Services staff. It will be arranged in line with the rules set out in the BID regulations (2004) as approved by Parliament.

The ballot needs to satisfy two tests: A majority in number of those voting and a majority in proportion of rateable value of those voting. The TBID levy can only come into effect if these two tests are met.

The TBID levy is then applicable to all eligible businesses.

Voting Procedures

  • Your ballot paper will be distributed on 27 May, 2021
  • You will need to cast and return your postal vote by 5pm on 24 June, 2021
  • The results of the vote will be announced online on 25 June, 2021

All eligible businesses will be entitled to one vote per hereditament. Some businesses occupying more than one hereditament within the area will therefore be entitled to more than one vote.
