Companies in Northfield have backed another term for the area's business improvement district.
They voted overwhelmingly in favour of another five-year spell for Northfield BID, with 70.3 per cent of businesses in the south Birmingham suburb voting 'yes', based on a turnout of 54.1 per cent.
A business improvement district is a precisely defined geographical area in which companies pay an extra levy on their rates which are then used to fund services and initiatives aimed at improving the area.
BIDs run for five years at a time before businesses vote on whether to continue the service.
Northfield BID chairman Andy Clarke said: "This is a great result for Northfield high street and businesses.
"We can now continue with the good work achieved so far and look forward to another five years of extra services and added value across Northfield."
BID manager Marcia Greenwood added: "We would like to thank all the businesses who have supported us in our first term and an even bigger thank you to those who voted in favour of a second term.
"The work we do is imperative to ensure that Northfield continues to be a leading local centre.
"With the regeneration of other local centres, we cannot afford to be complacent and I'm pleased to see that businesses realise this and have not only supported Northfield BID but have supported Northfield."
Coun John Clancy, leader of Birmingham City Council, said: "This is exciting news, not just for businesses in Northfield but for the wider community, who will also see significant benefits from this decision.
"Overseeing economic development across Birmingham is a key part of my responsibilities as council leader, so I am delighted that the business community in Northfield has overwhelmingly backed a second term, enabling Northfield BID to continue growing and building on the successes of its first term."
