One Linlithgow BID
Linlithgow is a special place. Its combination of history, community, tradition, and unique array of family-run, independent businesses, make it a great place to stay, work and visit. The One Linlithgow Business Improvement District (BID) aims to unite all the businesses, community, business and transport groups, leisure facilities and heritage sites to encourage them to work collectively to create a thriving and engaging environment for businesses, the community and visitors alike.
A Shop Local Initiative
In partnership with High Street Traders and the Linlithgow Community Development Trust, One Linlithgow will be launching the Linlithgow Loop - a monthly newsletter highlighting special offers and promotions from local businesses for the following month. These will also be advertised on the MyLinlithgow.com website. Don't miss out and subscribe now to receive the first exciting issue on launch!
Single-Use Plastics Ban
New laws regarding single-use plastics will come into force on 1 June 2022. After this date, certain single-use plastics (see below) will be banned unless an exemption applies. To learn how this might affect your business, visit Zero Waste Scotland for more information and guidance in preparation for the new legislation.

Our Mill Road Co-ordinator is working with BID members at the Mill Road Industrial Estate/Enterprise Park to update signage for the estate to help visitors find their way. Once all the information has been collected, new signs will be ordered and installed.
At the request of BID members, a fence or hedging will be installed in the area between the Mill Road Industrial Estate/Enterprise Park and the motorway. This will help improve security and enhance the area. This project was delayed due to the pandemic but is now underway.
One Linlithgow is working with West Lothian Council (WLC) to arrange the placement of additional general waste bins in various locations around the town including opposite the Linlithgow Rose Football Club and in the Mill Road Industrial Estate/Enterprise Park. The emptying of these bins will be included in WLC's collection calendar.
