Businesses in a town will have the last chance to decide whether to vote for or against a new initative today (Monday).

The Letchworth Garden City BID - Business Improvement District – aims to create a thriving town centre with businesses working together for the benefit of all.

North East Herts MP Oliver Heald is backing the BID.

He said: “I am pleased to support the Letchworth BID and hope local businesses and traders will have the chance to improve the local environment for businesses. I know from other local towns how effective a BID can be to boosting the local economy.”

The postal ballot closes on today at 5pm, with the result being announced tomorrow (Tuesday).
