BID company urged to defer collection of levy

Thursday, 19 March 2020

We have written to the Yorkshire Coast Business Improvement District (BID) company calling on it to join the collective effort to support local businesses facing hardship during the coronavirus outbreak.

Cllr Liz Colling, Deputy Leader, said:

"In addition to the information we published yesterday about how we are administering the Government’s package of business support measures at a local level, we have also urged the Yorkshire Coast BID company to demonstrate their support by deferring collection of the levy at this exceptional time.

"It is very important that we all work together to support our communities through this extremely challenging time and we trust that Yorkshire Coast BID will join with us in supporting our local businesses."
