  • To provide all levy payers subject to the Hexham BID an opportunity to comment on the organisation’s future
  • To find out whether you think the Hexham BID should continue, and if so in what form, or if it should be terminated
  • To identify your views, queries, comments and concerns regarding the operation of Hexham BID to date
  • To identify your priorities in ensuring Hexham is a successful town

Hexham Business Improvement District has operated since October 2016, following a successful ballot of local businesses in February 2016.  In December 2017 the Hexham BID Board gave notice to the County Council of their intention to resign and terminate the BID arrangements.  Prior to their resignation it was the Board’s responsibility to undertake a consultation (as legislatively required by the national BID regulations 2004) with businesses subject to the BID levy regarding their proposal to terminate the BID.  

The Board’s resignation took effect from 4th February 2018 and as there has not been a consultation on the proposal to terminate the BID the County Council now want to find out what the views are of all businesses subject to the Hexham BID levy prior to any action being taken.  In the meantime the BID company still exists although it cannot currently operate without a Board of Directors.
