Renewal Ballot 2018

Renewal process

Essential Edinburgh BID operates on a five year term, with a renewal ballot taking place in the final year of the term. Essential Edinburgh was formed following a positive initial ballot in May 2008, and continued into a second term in 2013 following a second successful ballot. In April 2018 voting will open for the third term of Essential Edinburgh with the result being published in May 2018.

 

The Draft Business Plan for the third BID term is now out for consultation. The plan has been formed from research and feedback provided by levy paying BID businesses. An official period of consultation on the draft plan has begun and will last until the end of October 2017. During this time, we’re keen to develop an even better understanding of all our businesses needs and develop a Business Plan for the next five years that will allow Edinburgh’s city centre to thrive.

 

To ensure the final Business Plan benefits as many businesses as possible we need your input. A programme of feedback sessions has been arranged at the Royal Society of Edinburgh on George Street to hear your views and discuss your priorities for the future. Group sessions will take place 8am – 10am and 12pm – 2pm on each day, with the opportunity to drop in any time between 8am and 7pm.
