City Centre Performance


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

Springboard Footfall Reports

The BID 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, we will not receive year on year comparisons until data has been taken for a full year (March 2019).
