Background Information: Cambridge Business Improvement District (BID) has completed feasibility and planning exercises as it prepares for a third term ballot to support continued delivery of BID activity over the period 1st April, 2023, to 31st March, 2028. The intention is for the ballot to be held in October 2022 with the result of the ballot to be announced in November, 2022. The BID proposal and associated business plan for its third term will be published ahead of the ballot. Based on this timetable, the ballot will have been open for voting before the next Strategy & Resources (S&R) Scrutiny Committee in October 2022, hence why this report and its recommendations are being presented to the July S&R Committee for approval.
