What is a BID Levy 

A Business Improvement District (BID) Levy is payable by ratepayers, in addition to the Business Rates, if they operate a property of a certain type that falls within a BID area.

The Council collect this Levy on behalf of an independent company running a programme of additional services over and above that provided by the public sector.

A BID can only operate if the majority of the businesses affected vote in favour of one being put in place.
