Edinburgh businesses urged to back west end BID
January 22 2015
Voting will continue through to 5 March and targets the retail, service and hospitality sectors. It is designed to help the area recover from the disruption caused by tram works and recession, particularly the area around Shandwick Place, by targetting road works, traffic management, parking, refuse, cleanliness and general maintenance in order to create a more favourable impression for travellers arriving at Haymarket Station.
In practice this will see a renewed focus on improved signage, better marketing and cleaner streets, extending the existing BID area of Essential Edinburgh.
Michael Apter, chair of the west end BID Steering Group said “The idea behind this BID is to return the West End to its former glory and create a busy, vibrant and successful West End in 2015 and beyond.”
