Important Documents

Business Improvement District

The Avondale Business Association is one of 60 or so Business Improvement Districts in Auckland.  This means that property and business owners within the BID pay a BID Targeted Rate in their rates to Council.  Council then makes these funds available to the association to use on its activities.  The board determines how this money is spent via its business and strategy plans.  Click here to read more about Council's BID policy.

How much you pay

Total funds received from Council amount to $154,000.  To find out how much your business is paying into the BID programme, see the reverse side of your commercial rates invoice.
