BiDS

Business Improvement Districts Scotland is the national organisation for BIDs in Scotland, providing support, advice and encouragement to communities, local trusts, businesses and local authorities considering a business improvement district. BIDs are not restricted to towns and cities but can be developed for rural, tourism and food and drink. A community led regeneration model, BIDs help to develop local capacity and strong partnerships whilst ensuring that projects and services are delivered which will be of benefit to the local economy. The Scottish Government is currently offering a grant of up to £20000 to assist in the development of a BID.
