Introducing Enterprising Bathgate : Scotland’s first Business Improvement District
In March 2008 Enterprising Bathgate became Scotland’s first Business Improvement District (BID).
Over the past decade, the popularity of BIDs in the UK has grown at a phenomenal rate, with over 135 established BIDs in England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. There are currently 36 operational BIDs in Scotland, with more current development BIDs in the pipeline. This proves that BIDs really can and do work (particularly through a recession and challenging conditions) as a tool for providing the trading environment, which businesses want for themselves, their staff, customers and clients.
We have a number of video presentations which give an excellent overview of the stages of development of Enterprising Bathgate and BIDs in general. VIEW VIDEOS
