About I love Clarkston Business Improvement District (BID)
The Clarkston Town Centre Business Improvement District is made up of some 132 businesses centred round Clarkston Toll and the Sheddens Roundabout. Located in East Renfrewshire it was put forward for a BID by the East Renfrewshire Chamber of Trade and Commerce. The BID’s aim was to create a business-led programme of investment to tackle issues identified by businesses, with the aim of increasing the number of people shopping, visiting, working and investing in Clarkston town centre. The BID went to ballot in June 2010 where it achieved a yes and became Scotland’s tenth Business Improvement District. Further to this, a successful re-ballot took place in June 2015 at the end of the BID’s first term, meaning I Love Clarkston will continue until at least 2020.
