Dunfermline Delivers BID

Dunfermline Delivers is your local Business Improvement District (BID) company run by, and for, local businesses and levy payers who are trading in the BID area. All the staff, board members and observers are passionate about Dunfermline and equally passionate about its future. Dunfermline Delivers was established, following a period of consultation and a ballot, in 2009.

What is a BID Company?

A BID (or Business Improvement District) is a business-led body formed with the sole objective of collectively investing in a defined commercial area with the aim of creating a brighter future for the business environment.

BID funds support activities aimed at improving the city centre environment; the activities are additional to, and do not replace, services currently carried out by the local authority and other statutory agencies. 

Where do we get our funding from?

Dunfermline Delivers is funded by two main income sources, bid levy income and Fife Council’s voluntary contribution. The BID levy is collected from the 500 or so commercial properties within the Dunfermline BID area. The BID levy is a fixed rate of £100 for those with a rateable value of £10,000 or less, and, for those with a rateable value of over £10,000, the levy is 1% of their rateable value.
