Ilkley BID Renewal 2024

The Ilkley BID was set up in 2019 with a Business Plan to focus on the themes of marketing the town, one voice for businesses, maintaining Ilkley as an attractive place and supporting businesses. Over the first four years of our term we have delivered a number of initiatives within each sector and also supported businesses in many ways throughout the last four years. The current Ilkley BID term is due to end in May 2024 and must undergo a renewal ballot. Businesses who meet the criteria and are within the BID area will be asked to vote in favour of supporting a second five-year term. In February 2024, you will be asked to vote on whether you want the BID to operate for second five year term.
