The Business Improvement District for Canterbury covers the heart of the city centre and contains the main retail, office and leisure areas. The BID area was defined as a result of detailed consultation with representatives of each of the key business sectors to gain an understanding of the extent and strength of support for inclusion within the area. From this it was then possible to construct an outline of the area, the result of which is shown below. The BID area for the second BID term (2019-2024) is the same as it was in the first BID term (2014-2019).
