Please could all BID Levy Voters return their completed Ballot Paper as soon as possible to ensure they reach CIVICA before the deadline - 5pm on Thursday 13th July 2023. It's essential that the Ballot receives a good turnout of Ballot Papers to ensure the end result can be officially ratified.
Damian Pulford, Chairman of LBP said:
"A 'Yes' vote in the upcoming BID Ballot is a vote to enable the good work to continue and for the BID to develop and expand the services provided to help our businesses succeed. Please could all BID Levy Payers return their ballot papers, as without your vote the BID could end and all the good work could end along with it."
