Using Your Vote

From August 26, 2021, you will be given the opportunity to vote on this business proposal for the establishment of the Brompton Road BID.

To ensure neutrality, the BID ballot will be administered by the Westminster City Council and the Royal Borough and Kensington and Chelsea Returning Officer and electoral services staff. It will be arranged in line with the rules set out in the BID regulations (2004) as approved by Parliament.

The ballot will need to satisfy two tests: A majority in number of those voting and a majority in proportion of rateable value of those voting. The BID levy can only come into effect if these two tests are met.

The BID levy is then applicable to all eligible rate payers.

Voting procedures

  • Your ballot paper will be distributed on August 26, 2021
  • You will need to cast and return your postal vote by 5pm on September 23, 2021
  • The results of the vote will be announced online on September 24, 2021

All eligible businesses will be entitled to one vote per hereditament. Some businesses occupying more than one hereditament within the area will therefore be entitled to more than one vote.
