BID4Oban Ballot is a resounding YES!

BID4Oban are delighted to announce that they have been successful in their ballot for a second term of running the Business Improvement District in Oban. Of the votes cast there was a 75% vote in favour of the BID continuing for the next five years which represented 68% of the rateable value of businesses that completed the ballot.

Andrew Spence (Chief Executive) commented, “This is a resounding mandate from the towns business community to continue the work of the BID company. The BID company has worked hard over the last five years to improve the environment of the town of Oban along with funding for festivals, events and infrastructure projects. The BID has also worked with their partners in the tourist industry to promote the town as a destination for visitors.”

Andrew also added, “That the hard work starts now to continue to improve the towns economy, infrastructure and environment. We will continue to invest in any project that improves the economy of the town. We want an all-inclusive working relationship with every business sector in Oban to ensure we are servicing all our levy payers.”

Andrew would also like to thank the dedication of the BID’s team based in Oban without whose support, commitment and hard work this result would not have been possible. He also thanked the Returning Officer of Argyll and Bute Council for administering the ballot.
