S5W-20272: Bill Bowman (North East Scotland)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 29 November 2018

To ask the Scottish Government how much was raised in each of the last five years through levies that generate funding for (a) Business Improvement Districts and (b) Scotland’s Improvement Districts, broken down by district.

Answered by: Aileen Campbell 10 December 2018

The Scottish Government does not collect data on the annual levies collected by Business Improvement Districts (BIDs) in Scotland. Each BID’s business plan will contain estimates of their levy for the duration of their term.

Scotland’s Improvement Districts is the new national delivery partner for BIDs in Scotland. Operated by Scotland’s Towns Partnership it supports existing, developing and emerging BIDs including support for new models of BIDs which have greater capacity through wider public, private and community partnerships.
