BIDs in Edinburgh – A New Beginning in 2018
The City of Edinburgh Council and BIDs Scotland are supportive of exploring the level of interest among businesses in creating a new BID – an Old Town BID. Such a BID would have the scale, reach and influence to help shape the policies and decisions which so impact on the economic performance of the area. It would have the funding and organisational support to initiate and deliver projects that would ensure that this unique place was marketed and maintained to compete with global visitor destinations into the 2020s.
A consultation period lasting several months will begin in April. A Steering Group is being formed to lead the consultation and to make sure that the Business Proposal which emerges truly reflects the priorities identified by you. Your views will be sought on what your issues, concerns and opportunities are. How important is safety and security, litter and street-cleaning, waste and re-cycling, activities and events, branding and raising awareness, being represented, supported and communicated with, working with other businesses and enhancing the area’s reputation and appeal.
You can contribute to discussion on where the boundary should be, how the levy is calculated and how it should be invested. Perhaps you would like to join the Steering Group?
