What is Discover Lanark?
Discover Lanark aims to implement innovative projects and services through the creation of a Business Improvement District . A BID is an initiative where businesses work in partnership with local authorities and other key stakeholders to develop their town.
Lanark is currently in a one-year consultation phase whereby a collaborative five-year costed business plan will be developed that meets the needs of business owners and helps bring a range of initiatives to life.
The business plan then goes to ballot and if approved, the project is introduced for five years.
Over 30 towns in Scotland have already created their Business Improvement Districts and another 15 are in the consultation phase, showing that BIDs are an established means for businesses and organisations to achieve their ambitions for their towns.
