Business Improvement Districts (BIDS)
The Wiri Business Association is also one of 51 Business Improvement Districts in Auckland and the relationship between Auckland Council and the business association is guided by a BID Policy, which was updated in 2022.
BID’s are funded by an additional rate known as a ‘targeted rate’, paid by all business and commercial property owners within the defined area. Although council collects the rate for the BID, it does not spend the rate. 100% of the targeted rate money collected by council is granted to the BID Executive Committee. The Committee determines how this money is spent via its Strategic Plan and annual business plan and budget as agreed at each year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

To find out how much your business is paying into the BID programme, see the reverse side of your commercial rates invoice.
All property owners and businesses within the Wiri BID targeted rate area (link to BID map) are eligible to become members of the Association. Please contact our manager Membership & Engagement Manager Diana Viljoen on 027 307 2761 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire .
