Businesses Say Yes to BID

Village businesses have secured a YES vote to becoming a Business Improvement District, with 75% voting in favour.

The result follows months of hard work to design an investment scheme that tackles the underlying issues that the centre faces and promotes the area more effectively.  It is particularly pleasing that so many independent businesses have backed the BID, with approximately 80% voting in favour.

Full Result:
Yes vote by number: 75%
Yes vote by rateable value: 64%
Turnout 44%
