Business Improvement Districts and town centres
Having supported over 35 BIDs and business associations since 2006 with effective collaborative planning, we understand the particular complexities of place-based, business membership organisations; not to mention the challenges of their unique multi-stakeholder environment. Our expertise helps you engage your members and key partners in a meaningful planning process that is focused on building agreement and momentum towards valuable shared outcomes.
If you’re considering setting up a BID, or morphing an existing business association into a BID, we can help you navigate through the establishment process in partnership with your council and local stakeholders. Our recent projects include establishing Business Improvement Districts in Miramar and Kilbirnie in Wellington, and Blenheim in Marlborough. We’ve helped establish numerous BIDs in Auckland, and in 2014 / 2015 we supported the Auckland Council to carry out a full review of its BID Partnership Programme and BID Policy.
How we can help:
- Collaborative strategic planning
- Project management
- Governance advice and support
- Business Improvement District establishment
- Advice and development for council BID policies
