Canterbury Bid

Representation & Consultation

The BID works with Canterbury City Council, Kent County Council, Kent Police and other bodies to ensure the city is coordinated, operates well and make sure that the levy payers’ interests are represented positively and that city centre businesses are included in vital decision making.

Transport and access

We consult businesses to influence transport and parking plans to ensure that they are appropriate for a major retail, business service and visitor location.

2020-21 Parking Consultation

Canterbury City Council is seeking to make a number of changes to charges and conditions in Council car parks. Canterbury BID is aware that these changes, if implemented, are likely to have an impact on the business community and are keen to ensure that your views are heard as part of the consultation.  

We commissioned a local independent organisation the Public Engagement Agency Ltd, to work with us to obtain feedback and to write up an independent report.

We hosted a virtual workshop on Wednesday 9 December for business to attend and provide feedback on the proposed changes to charges and conditions in Council car parks. In addition we conducted a short online survey.

Feedback from both the workshop and survey were used to produce a report that has been submitted to Canterbury City Council as part of the current consultation:
