The BID is an opportunity to allow businesses in the area to work with each other and with other stakeholders to make the area a better place to work.
The Leader of the Council has outlined the commitment of the Council to the business improvement district that it will continue to deliver services at the same or higher level where possible.
The Essential Edinburgh BID is an opportunity for the business community to engage better with the local authority and other relevant organisations. It has been clearly identified that one of the key issues for the success of the BID area is accessibility. This cannot be tackled by the BID alone and a major role for the BID is to lobby those organisations that do have a role in this respect.
We also provide any other facilitation services and events that businesses identify. We work to ensure the BID has its share of voice across the City of Edinburgh.
We also work to identify other sources of funding to complement the money raised through the levy.
