Feasibility Report

The Welcome to Yorkshire Coast Tourism Advisory Board commissioned a review of the area to see what type of BID would best benefit the Yorkshire Coast.  This valuable piece of research created the foundation on which the consultation was based throughout 2018.

Business Plan

This Business Plan (PDF download) outlines everything from the BID basics, the associated financials through to the projects which have been identified following the extensive consultation that took place with local businesses in the Yorkshire Coast area throughout 2018.


Following the publication of the Business Plan, a notification of ballot was posted and published to all that were invited to vote in the ballot.

The ballot was successful, acting as the legal ability to set up the BID Company as a non-profit organisation in 2019.

Articles of Association

The viewable articles were created to set a clear framework for how the Board of Directors governs the BID Company.  They were written following legal and BID consultation to ensure that the Board govern the BID in the best interest of the levy payers.
