A BRIDGE OF ALLAN Business Improvement District?
Dunblane recently voted in February, via a ballot amongst local businesses, to become a Business Improvement District – a BID. At the same time, the ballot for a BID in Stirling City Centre did not pass the ballot, failing by 8 votes from the businesses who voted.

Dunblane is pushing ahead with the plans they set out in their business plan and representatives were interviewed on BBC radio Scotland along with the BIDS Scotland chief executive. If you want to know more about BIDS, it’s worth listening to the interview. http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b05vh1np

Also, the video below features Alastair Mitchell from Falkirk Delivers at the BIDs Scotland Gathering.

There are currently 30 active BIDS in Scotland, with a further significant number currently going through the ballot process.

Following events at Holyrood for an All Parliamentary Group for towns and another related to tourism this week, it was announced that BIDS Scotland are planning to set up many more Business Improvement Districts in Scotland.
