Businesses across Newquay are being urged to return their ballot papers on the vote for a second term of the town’s Business Improvement District (BID).
The deadline falls on Thursday, December 10, but with ballot papers having to be returned by mail, time is running short for those who yet to vote.
The ballot to determine whether the BID will run a second term has been open since November 7 and all 439 eligible businesses should have had their ballot papers and a copy of the BID second term business plan by post.
If for any reason the elected people within these businesses have not received these papers, the BID board of directors are urging them to contact the BID office straight away to get their forms.
The last date for replacement ballot papers to be issued is Tuesday, December 8. Businesses have until 5pm on Thursday, December 10 to return their papers, by post, and cast their votes. The result will be announced on Friday, December 11.
The second five-year term of Newquay BID will secure an investment of over £750k that will be pumped back into the destination to improve the trading environment for businesses and to meet the objectives that are outlined in the 2016-2020 Newquay BID business plan.
