Business Improvement Districts
Information on Business Improvement Districts (BID)
The Clarkston Town Centre Business Improvement District is made up of some 132 businesses centred round Clarkston Toll and the Sheddens Roundabout. Located in East Renfrewshire it was put forward for a BID by East Renfrewshire Chamber of Trade and Commerce.
The BID is working to complete a business-led programme of investment to tackle issues identified by businesses, with the aim of increasing the number of people shopping, visiting, working and investing in Clarkston town centre.
The BID went to ballot in June 2010 where it achieved a yes and became Scotland's tenth Business Improvement District.
Clarkston BID has its own website and retail map. For more information go to the External websites area
Giffnock businesses will be next to vote on the potential for their area to become a BID. Work will commence on this in 2012.
