The fate of Carluke’s controversial BIDS town centre improvement scheme should be known on Monday.
That is when a statement on the future - if any - of the scheme has
been promised from local businessman Martin Hannah (pictured) who stood down as
BIDS chairman last week.
His sudden resignation, along with that of manager Jim McNally, added
to the abrupt postponement of the BIDS (Business Improvement District)
AGM, has placed a question mark over the future of the initiative.
There was controversy earlier this year when it was learned that all
Carluke town centre premises - including charity chops and even
ex-shops now used only for storage - would have to make a financial
contribution to BIDS.
