Please see below the forecast of proposed BID Levy Charges dependent upon S12 (7) of the Colwyn Business Improvement District (BID) Proposal and Business Plan 2016-2021 - which states ‘there will be an annual inflationary increase of all levy charges (including fixed band charges) year on year for the duration of the Business Improvement District. This will be a minimum of 2% increase year on year or the inflation percentage as determined by the Consumer Price Index as at the 1st January of the year of the next billing process, whichever is the greater, rounded to the nearest tenth of a penny. (eg if a levy bill is £180 the inflation applied to this at a level of 2% would be £3.60 per annum). Negative inflation will not apply. Inflation will not apply for the first billing cycle in 2016.’
The Bid Levy is calculated in accordance with the Rateable Value of all current hereditaments as at 1 October, 2015.
