Overview

Proposed Renewal of Sandyford Business Improvement District (B.I.D.) Scheme 

Local Government Act 2001 and The Local Government (Business Improvement Districts) Act 2006


A proposal to renew the Business Improvement District (B.I.D.) Scheme has been received from Sandyford BID CLG trading as Sandyford Business District in respect of the Sandyford Business District Area.  The current B.I.D. scheme will expire on 31st December, 2021.

The purpose of establishing a Business Improvement District is to enable ratepayers within the boundaries of the proposed B.I.D. to draw up a scheme of projects, services and works which are additional to those provided by Dún Laoghaire-Rathdown County Council and will be carried out for the benefit of the Sandyford Business District B.I.D. area.

If the Local Authority approves the proposal to renew the scheme, having first conducted a plebiscite of local ratepayers, the B.I.D. scheme will continue for a further five years, commencing on 1st January, 2022. The scheme will be financed by an annual B.I.D. contribution levy imposed on and collected from ratepayers of rateable property within the proposed Business Improvement District. 
 

Why your views matter

Where a proposal for a B.I.D. scheme is received by a local authority, the legislation requires that the local authority engage in a public consultation process and invite submissions and comments from the public in relation to the proposed scheme.  A report on the submissions received is then prepared by the local authority and that report, together with details of the submissions received, is made available to the B.I.D. scheme proponents and is also presented to the Elected Members at a meeting of the Council. Based on the submissions received a decision is then made by the proponents on whether to proceed with the proposed B.I.D. scheme to a plebiscite of ratepayers within the proposed B.I.D. scheme area.
