Why does Falkirk still need a BID?

Our Business Consultation identified 4 key reasons why Falkirk needs a BID now more than ever.

1. Falkirk Delivers will begin its fourth term as a powerful force working for town-centre businesses. All projects can be delivered without external funding. It is, however, a central aim of Falkirk Delivers to secure additional funding to deliver more projects that make a positive impact for the local businesses and the wider community. This additional funding will allow for the extension of existing projects as well as the creation of new projects not included in these proposals.

 

2. Falkirk Delivers will continue to be a strong advocate for our business members, demonstrating our collective strength in lobbying, marketing and improvements to the area at the best possible value.

 

3. Falkirk Council, which has provided extensive in-kind support as well as financial assistance since the development phase of Falkirk Delivers, will continue to be a key partner throughout the next BID term. Falkirk Council could contribute up to £1,000,000 in the next 5 years – this funding will be lost to the Town Centre without Falkirk Delivers.

 

4. If the BID is not renewed, all activity and investment stops. In this current economic climate, it would be unrealistic to assume that this work will be taken on by others with the resources and funds currently available to Falkirk Delivers.

 

Vote Yes to ensure the Falkirk Delivers continues its work.
