Canterbury BID gives businesses an independent voice and invests in business-led initiatives with a focus on promoting Canterbury as a brilliant destination for shopping, culture, heritage and hospitality, and a great place to work, with a vibrant, exciting, well connected business community.

All businesses in the BID Area receive the benefits outlined in the Business Plan as part of their annual levy payment.

We also offer Voluntary BID Membership for businesses and organisations in the Canterbury area, but outside of the designated city-centre BID area, who wish to support the investment the BID makes in Canterbury. Voluntary membership applications are subject to a contribution based on the size of your business and will be assessed on a case by case basis by the BID board.
