Business Improvement District (BID) Policy
The BID Policy outlines how we work with local business associations.
BID Policy background
The Finance and Performance Committee approved the current BID Policy on 26 July 2022. It became operative on 1 August 2022.
BIDs are areas within Auckland where local business and property owners agree to work together, with support from the council, to:
- improve their business environment
- promote innovation and economic prosperity
- attract new businesses and customers.
The Auckland Council BID Policy is supported by a three-year BID Targeted Rate Grant Agreement (BID Policy section 2.4) that sets out the terms of the relationship between Auckland Council and a BID-operating business association.
Purpose of the BID policy
The BID policy outlines how Auckland Council works with BID-operating business associations in Auckland.
- provides a framework for the governance, accountability and management of BID programmes
- aims to sustain public trust and confidence in the BID programme
- balances Auckland Council’s role in the programme with the independence of BID-operating business associations.
