News Council Postpone Late Night Levy Full Council Meeting

Local Authority may prefer to introduce a BID instead of a Levy

“The Full Council at Gloucester City Council originally planned to meet regarding the Late Night Levy proposals on the 23rd March 2017 but this has now been postponed until the 21st July 2017 for a final decision.

The reason for the meeting being deferred is a number of consultation responses requested a Business Improvement District (BID) to deliver initiatives for a safer night time economy as an alternative to a Late Night Levy.

We understand that the Gloucester BID is holding a ballot from the 1st June 2017 for one month to see if the trade would like this adopting. If the BID is successful we understand it will take effect from September 2017.

Once this consultation period is over the Council Members can make a more informed decision on whether the Late Night Levy should be adopted.

We will keep you updated on any further developments.”
