BID Projects

Christchurch BID is a business-led company whose sole purpose is to improve the BID commercial area – in our case, the Town Centre. Funded by businesses, for the benefit of those businesses, the BID enables us to coordinate investment into our area and delivers projects and services which are in addition to those already provided by the Council. We are a not-for-profit company, created for a five-year term from the ballot in November 2021.

Detailed feedback has suggested that improvement plans for Christchurch should focus around the following four main themes:


Introduce a number of new and ongoing measures to improve the appearance of the town centre, so creating a much more attractive place to visit.


Ensure that new events & street entertainment are developed specifically for the town centre and that businesses benefit more from existing events.


Develop a compelling & co-ordinated strategy to take the marketing & promotion of the town to the next level.


Ensure that everything the BID does is designed to support and develop businesses in Christchurch and create a strong local business community.
