This is the result of the ballot to create a business improvement district under the Planning etc (Scotland) Act 2006, business improvement districts (Scotland) Regulations 2007 for Visit West End - Byres Road & Lanes. The ballot was held by post with polls closing at 5 pm on Thursday 26 February 2015.

There were no rejected Ballot Papers.

The rateable values of the relevant properties in respect of which votes were cast are as follows

Aggregate of the rateable values of the relevant properties in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted for
the BID proposals (A)

£4,935,650      

Aggregate of the rateable values of the relevant properties in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted against the BID proposals (B)

£949,700

The aggregate of the rateable value of all lands and heritages in respects of which a person is entitled to vote in the ballot is £8,723,450

On the basis of these papers :

1. The number of votes cast in favour of the BID proposals exceeds the number of votes cast against those proposals;

2. The aggregate of the rateable value of the relevant properties in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted for the BID (A) exceeds the aggregate of the rateable values of the relevant properties in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted against the BID proposals (B);

3. At Least 25% of the persons entitled to vote in the ballot (51 out of 204) have done so; and

4. The aggregate of the rateable values of relevant properties in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted for the BID proposals (A) plus the aggregates of the rateable values of the relevant properties in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted against the BID proposals (B) is equal to at least 25% of the aggregate of the rateable values of all relevant properties in respect of which a person is entitled to vote in the ballot (£2,180,863 of £8,723,450).

As these four conditions have been met I therefore declare that, on the basis of a ballot held for the purposes of section 38(1) of the Planning etc (Scotland) Act 2006, under business improvement districts (Scotland) Regulations 2007, the BID proposals for the areas of Visit West End - Byres Road & Lanes listed on the ballot paper have been approved.
