City Centre Performance Reports
On a monthly basis since the start of the BID in 2014, we have produced a report on how the city centre is performing based on a range of indicators. The data is pulled from a number of sources both at local level and a national level. The objective of the reports is to track the impact of economic activity on the city centre, and to provide a baseline from which future performance can be benchmarked. The reports consider the following key indicators to determine the City’s economic health:
- Business premises vacancy rates
- Business premises type
- Business start-up rates (data available up to September 2018)
- City Centre footfall
- Business Sales Performance
See below for these reports.
Springboard Footfall Reports
The BID also receives weekly and monthly footfall analysis reports through Springboard. A reporting contract was agreed in March 2018 and data has been collected since then. Below you will find the latest weekly reports and a month on month analysis.
Please note, the reports do not include the 2018 vs. 2017 comparative data as we only started collecting data in March 2018, this is particularly important when looking at Canterbury’s 2019 data as there is nothing to compare it to (yet!).
