Your BID – Voting results

Acocks Green Village secured a YES vote to becoming a Business Improvement District, in November 2011, with a 44% turn-out; 72% of those voting in favour of a BID by number and 64% by RV. The result followed months of hard work to design a business plan that addressed the underlying issues that the town faces, and ideas to promote the area more effectively. It is particularly pleasing that so many local independent businesses backed the BID.

In May 2016, the BID went to renewal ballot for BID2 with a new business plan based on the views and thoughts of our businesses having assessed what we had delivered to them throughout our first term. This resulted in a resounding YES vote again with figures for turn-out, and votes by number and by RV being higher than in 2011! The results were;

  • Turn-out – 48%
  • Yes by number – 75%
  • Yes by RV – 82%
This gave the BID a mandate to deliver more projects and services to Acocks Green Village over a new 5 year term (Jan 2017 – Dec 2021). See our business plan in the downloads section of this site.
