GO! Southampton intends to go to ballot in 2021 to secure the mandate and investment to continue for a further five years. Our mission is to strive to continuously improve the city centre by delivering relevant services, providing a voice for our businesses, influencing strategy and being a catalyst for positive change.
With almost 5 years under our belt and a track record of making things happen, GO! Southampton has earned its place as a credible contributor to the success of the City Centre. As we near the end of our first five year term we are now seeking your feedback and suggestions to assist us in preparing our proposal for 2022-27.
In October 2021, along with all eligible businesses in the BID area, you will be invited to vote on whether you would like GO! Southampton to continue for a further five years. Without your support and a majority YES vote at the ballot, GO! Southampton will be wound down and all of the services and projects it delivers will come to an end.
Have you filled out our business survey?
Your business is our business – which is why your experiences and views on the BID are so important to us. Your feedback will help us shape our next five years and influence the projects and services we do to help benefit you best. Please take five minutes of your time to fill out our survey by clicking below.
Who should we send your ballot paper to?
When the time comes to vote, it’s important that the ballot paper gets in the right hands at your business. If you are an independent likely this is the owner of the business or manager. For nationals, this could either be at a local level (store manager, local manager, owner) or at Head Office level. Please let us know who the voter is and where these papers should be posted to by emailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
