How we operate

We are one of more than fifty business associations across Auckland delivering a Business Improvement District (BID) programme. Auckland Council supports business associations operating BID programmes set out in the council BID Policy 2022. BID programmes provide a mechanism and a relationship between Heart of the City and Auckland Council. 

We’re an incorporated society, operating by the terms of our Constitution and Auckland Council’s BID Policy and we are governed by our Executive Committee.

Our main source of funding is a targeted rate collected from property owners within our boundaries. A map of our boundaries can be found here.
