NUL BID extended until March 2021

As a result of the COVID 19 situation and to enable us to support you in recovery in this unprecedented situation, the Government has granted any BID renewing this year an extension of 6 months.  To that end we are happy to announce the re-ballot will take place in March 2021.

As a consequence of this extension, the current BID arrangements, plans and levy criteria will therefore continue until the end of March 2021, for which a pro-rata levy bill will be raised in September to cover this period.  This as a positive measure that will not only allow us to support you and your business over the next few months but will also allow us to re-engage with you regarding the BID re-ballot.


New BID Plan objectives to be reviewed

With the renewal being extended to March 2021 this will give us the necessary time to work with you to review and decide on the BID business plan objectives and priorities needed to support you in the next successive term of the BID.

Besides working closely with you in the next few weeks and months to provide support, we would also appreciate your thoughts on what you will need longer term and how the BID will need to work in the new normal.

A short survey has been compiled to help us to understand your needs over the coming weeks and we would appreciate your feedback to allow us to support you in the best way we can.

Plesae complete the Post Covid survey to help us understand your needs going forward.
