Old Town BID timetable to ballot

The OTCC encourages members of the public to take part in the on line consultation by the Old Town BID. Proposals for an extended version of the current Grassmarket BID have given rise to concerns by businesses and residents alike. With no independent evaluation of the Greater Grassmarket BID there are questionable benefits about a new and larger business monopoly of the Old Town.


The BID’s timetable is as follows :

13th November to 13th December
Feedback and drop-in sessions (this ended 29th Nov)
4th January to 12th February
Preparation of business proposal and completion of voter database
19th February
Business proposals submitted to BIDs Scotland
12th March
Business proposals submitted to City of Edinburgh Council and Scottish Government
7th May
Final Business Plan and Ballot Papers issued
21st June
Ballot closes and results announced
