Business Improvement Districts Scotland is the national organisation for BIDs in Scotland, providing support, advice and encouragement to business groups, communities and local authorities considering and developing a business improvement district.
We are now looking for The Next Generation of BIDs in Scotland so if you are a local business association, community group or local authority with ambitions for your town, city, business park, tourism area or food and drink group and want to see change and improvement then either give us a ring or drop us an email for an informal chat. If you need to find out more about BIDs in Scotland click on our You Tube link here where you will find lots of videos of people talking about BIDs and a representative selection of videos showing the work of the local BIDs.
By working together in a strong local partnership businesses can reduce costs, share risks and create new platforms for growth, contributing to the wider regeneration aspirations of the local community.
Strong local partnerships with sustainable finance, staff and an agreed plan deliver lasting positive change.
Development grant funding of up to £20,000 is available to assist with the development of your local BID click here for further details.
We are more than happy to have an informal conversation about how the business improvement district model can help you, just get in touch!
