The Thistles Shopping Centre in Stirling
The Thistles Shopping Centre in Stirling is the largest shopping centre for fashion outside Edinburgh with 90 shops. The management of the Thistles Shopping Centre are in favour of the proposed Business Improvement District for Stirling City Centre, with Phil Byrne the centre manager also the Vice chairman of the proposed Go Forth Stirling business improvement district.
Plans are in place to invite all the businesses in the City Centre of Stirling to come together to create a “Business Improvement District“ - a BID. This has been done in many cities in England and Scotland and has helped regenerate cities such as Hull, Nottingham, and Swindon, Farlkirk, Bathgate and Elgin.
Businesses in Stirling city centre will be voting about this in May 2017, with the results announced in June 2017.
