Section 8: Approval in ballot – alternative conditions

Section 8 allows those who have drawn up BID proposals to set a higher margin of either net annual values, or numbers of votes cast, or both, before a BID ballot can be taken as approved. In addition, the BID proposals submitted to the district council are required to state whether the alternative voting conditions will apply, so that a greater majority will be required, in either the number of votes cast by persons voting, or of the net annual value element of the vote.
