One Linlithgow

One Linlithgow is a whole-town Improvement District, which the businesses of Linlithgow voted to establish in October 2019 (further details here).

It is a not-for-profit company, administered by a board of volunteer directors (actually, at the time of writing this one week after the successful ballot… it’s a steering group, which will very soon become the board of directors!). Those volunteers are the owners of independent businesses, as well as local branches of national chains, and local Elected Members. In an advisory capacity, local community groups have also joined forces with the business community to create a loud and unified voice for Linlithgow. Once the new board of directors is fully constituted, a comprehensive list of its membership will be shown on this site, as well as Companies House. Administrative assistance is provided by management staff: Eddie Linton-Smith and Sally McIntosh-Anderson, while communications and press support is provided by John Smith and Hephzibah Kilbride.

One Linlithgow exists to support businesses the length and breadth of the town – not just the areas that used to be the Town Centre and Mill Road BID areas. Each one of those businesses (besides a few considered either too small or not sufficiently benefitted by One Linlithgow activity) pays an annual fee to One Linlithgow, in exchange for projects and services, as well as trying to draw in as much external financial support as possible.
