Termination of Hexham Business Improvement District (BID) Arrangements
On the 13th August 2018, Northumberland County Council (NCC) received notification from the Board of Hexham BID Limited, of their request to formally terminate the BID Arrangements. This was in the form of 28 days’ notice, as required by the BID Regulations.
We consider that all necessary consultation has taken place to enable us to accept the principle of termination of the BID Arrangements. The notice period ended on the 10th September 2018.
Council Officers, taking such professional advice as required, will now ensure that Northumberland County Council fulfils its obligations under the BID Regulations. This will include communication to levy payers, particularly in relation to any refund due. The Board of Hexham BID has assured us that they will also carry out their duties and responsibilities in accordance with Company Law.
Any assessment as to refunds that may be due will need to be made once:
BID Company accounts are finalised
The Company has ceased to trade and been wound-up to the satisfaction of the Council
The BID Revenue Account can be finally reconciled with all levy funds due to (or back to) it have been accounted for.
Once the above are completed, we will be in touch to inform how any refund process will be conducted.
