Silverdale begins bid for a BID [Local Matters]

On Monday the Local Matters published an article regarding Silverdale Business beginning our journey to become a Business Improvement District.

Businesses in and around Silverdale are to be asked by their local business association whether they would like to be part of a Business Improvement District (BID).

BIDs are a partnership between a business association and Auckland Council and aim to facilitate improvements and support business growth.

There are around 50 in Auckland – at present the only one locally is Destination Ōrewa Beach.

If a BID is formed, businesses within an area defined by a map must become members and pay a targeted rate to Council, which funds BID projects.

The BID application must be supported by the majority of businesses within the proposed area – this is determined by a survey.

Silverdale Business has begun the process of forming a BID, which can take around a year.

For several months, the association has paid for a representative, Emily Thomas, to go door to door learning more about local businesses and what they want from their business association.
