City Centre Performance Reports

On a monthly basis Canterbury Connected BID produces 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
  • City Centre footfall
  • Business Sales Performance
  • Tourism
