The Background

In September 2017 One Dalkeith secured seedcorn funding from BID Scotland, Midlothian Council and the Borders Railway Blueprint Fund.

A BID is a business-led initiative where businesses work together and invest collectively to improve their own business environment. BIDs across Scotland focus on what is a priority for their town or area. A BID creates a partnership between businesses across town and key stakeholders. 

The funding will support the appointment of a professional manager to develop a BID Business Plan.

Potential Project Ideas & Themes

Here are just some ideas that the One Dalkeith BID could consider:

  • Putting a town back on the tourist map
  • Improving the looks of Dalkeith
  • Savings on buying costs
  • Year long event calendar
  • Welcome and orientation signs
  • Business training support
  • Working with schools and young people
  • ... what is decided is up to local businesses..........

What is One Dalkeith?

One Dalkeith is a Development Trust created and owned by our  community, so that people can improve local community life in five areas – our town centre, the environment, community facilities, our local economy and arts, culture & heritage.   One Dalkeith is for all community members to bring their skills, ideas, and love for the town and be involved in whatever projects most interest them.   Together, we can make Dalkeith the best it can be...
