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 within Shawlands.  The Ballot was held by post with polls closing at 5pm on 20 April 2017.

The electorate consisted of:    345 businesses

The total votes cast were:       151

And the turnout (the headcount) was: 43.93 %

And the turnout by Rateable Value (A+B) was: 45.26 %

The votes cast were as follows

There were 4 rejected papers.

The rateable values of the lands and heritages in respect of which these votes were cast are as follows:

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

£2,656,300.00

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

£842,900.00

 

The aggregate of the rateable values of all lands and heritages in respect of which a person is entitled to vote in the ballot is £7,731,900.00.

On the basis of these papers:

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

2.  The aggregate of the rateable values of the lands and heritages in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted for the BID proposals does exceed the aggregate of the rateable values of the lands and heritages in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted against the BID proposals;

3.  At least 25% of the persons entitled to vote in the ballot have done so; and

4.  The aggregate of the rateable values of the lands and heritages in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted for the BID proposals plus the aggregate of the rateable values of the lands and heritages in respect of which a person voting in the ballot has voted against the BID proposals isequal to at least 25% of the aggregate of the rateable values of all lands and heritages in respect of which a person is entitled to vote in the ballot.

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, the BID proposals for the areas of Shawlands listed on the Ballot Paper have been approved.
