Babbacombe traders question BID ballot

A number of traders in Babbacombe, Torquay, in Devon say their BID was approved despite some traders not receiving ballot papers. The same traders say they would have voted against the BID if they had been given the chance.

a group of about 20 traders, mainly from the Reddenhill Road and Babbacombe Downs area, claim some businesses did not receive voting papers and they object to having to pay an extra bill to pay for the BID after the ‘yes’ vote” 

But how when the ballot papers didn’t reach the traders, their business rates bills and BID levy have no problem reaching the traders?
