Yorkshire Coast BID
Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are developed, managed and funded by businesses for five years.
The company has been set up as a not for profit, limited by guarantee, governed by a Board of Directors who represent levy-paying businesses from different areas and sectors.
YC BID Governance
The BID is governed by a board of levy-paying directors who are all responsible for ensuring the BID company operates in the very best interest of levy-paying businesses whilst adhering to the government BID Regulations.
How are directors selected?
When the BID company was launched, all levy paying businesses were invited to nominate themselves to become a director, after they had completed their member application form.
How are directors appointed?
All directors who apply to be on the board are vetted to ensure they are a member, have paid their levy within 3 months of the bills being issued and promise to not only represent their area and sector, but also, agree to maintaining the overall health of the BID company.
If multiple people have applied for a single available position, BID members are asked to vote on whom they wish to have represent them. The business with the majority votes is then appointed to formally join the board.
Is the BID really private sector led?
The private sector directors share a protected 81% of voting power, with all public agencies capped at a share of 19%.
