Falkirk Council is set to vote on a site for its new arts centre and council headquarters.
The £45m arts centre, which has been given the go-ahead despite rising costs, will include a theatre, library and studio spaces alongside the council offices.
But the council is yet to agree on where it will be built. Council officers and the SNP want the arts centre and offices to be built together, whereas Labour have suggested splitting the projects across two sites.
Falkirk Business Improvement District Manager Elaine Grant says it is "critical" both the headquarters and arts centre are in built in the heart of the town.
"It will have a significant impact not just on local business but [also] through further investment."
The council will reconvene on September 24 to discuss further.
