Business Improvement District (BIDs)


Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) are formed, led, and funded by and for businesses in city centres, industrial estates, or tourist destinations, with the objective to boost economic growth in the defined areas.

BID member businesses

All BID businesses in the BID area contribute a levy which is used to fund improvements to the area, as well as to promote the area and its businesses to visitors and residents.
Businesses who are part of a BID can also dramatically reduce the costs of running their business by leveraging the collective buying power of the BID member businesses and exclusive arrangements with business facilitation companies like eyebright.

The role of eyebright

Through our partnership with BIDs across Scotland, eyebright have helped hundreds of businesses to run their businesses more effectively and managed to offset their levy through savings on their utilities bills that we achieved for them.
