Projects

On this page, you can see details of the projects that Milngavie BID has progressed to date and the status of each.

In determining the order in which projects are taken forward, our strategy is to deliver the maximum benefit in the earliest possible timeframe, having regard, of course, to the resources then available to us.

Where possible, we seek to augment the funding that we receive from the levy payers and EDC with funding from third party sources. We also seek to boost our project delivery capacity by securing non-financial assistance from both the private and public sectors.
