Canterbury Bid

Voluntary Membership

Canterbury BID gives businesses an independent voice and invests in business-led initiatives with a focus on promoting Canterbury as a cultural heritage destination with a vibrant, exciting, well connected business community. We are here to help make Canterbury an attractive, clean, green, safe and enjoyable destination for everyone.

Following the successful second BID Ballot in July 2019, all businesses in the BID Area receive the benefits outlined in the Business Plan as part of their annual levy payment.
