The Harrogate BID Board has agreed the timetable and the process for electing the Directors for the third year of the BID

We want to give every levy payer the opportunity to participate in the process, but to be able to put your name forward or to vote, you need to be a member of the Harrogate BID company. A Membership Application form together with the Rules can be downloaded for completion and emailed to before noon on 15 October 2020.  If you have completed the Application Form before, there is no need to submit a form again.  If you want to check that we have received your completed form, please contact

The applications will be processed and presented to the BID Board on 19 October. The next step from us will be to invite Harrogate BID Ltd members only to express an interest in being a Director of the Harrogate BID. Should we receive more names than vacancies to represent a business sector, then there will be a ballot.

If you have any questions, please phone us on 01423 582030.
