Business Improvement Districts (BIDs)
Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are where local businesses work as one to help improve an area.
Businesses decide if they want to set up a BID through holding a ballot. If the ballot is successful, they pay a levy. This is spent on local improvements.
There are four BIDs in Edinburgh
- Essential Edinburgh (City Centre)
- Greater Grassmarket (Grassmarket)
- Queensferry Ambition (South Queensferry)
- Edinburgh's West End (West of the City Centre)
