Business ratepayers in Bedford with a business of the required rateable value to be eligible to vote were issued with a postal ballot to say whether or not they supported the renewal of the BID.

The outcome of the ballot saw a majority of the Business ratepayers in the proposed BID area who voted in the ballot, both by aggregate rateable value and number voting, support the proposal.

More details about the ballot including the declaration of the result are available on the website of Bedford Borough Council, which was the 'Ballot Holder', here.
