Business Improvement Districts Act (Northern Ireland) 2013

Section 6: Entitlement to vote in Ballot

Section 6 sets out how entitlement to vote is determined. It requires the BID proposer to provide a statement to the district council that lists all those who will be eligible to vote in the BID ballot. The choice of who can vote is ultimately determined by the names appearing in the statement prepared by the BID proposers and the decision of who appears on the list is vested in the BID proposers. A person will be eligible to vote if he is chargeable to rates in respect of a property on the Net Annual Valuation (NAV) list within the BID area.
