Safety and Security Assistance
The role of the Panmure Security Liaison Officer is to promote a safe environment for both businesses and customers. He reports repairs and maintenance issues within Panmure Town Centre, and assists businesses with any criminal incidents. The PBA captures information from the CCTV camera network to pass onto the relevant agency.
The PBA owns an extensive CCTV security cameras network resulting in the reduction of anti-social behaviour and criminal incidents in the Town Centre. We work with and support the local NZ Policing team.
The PBA owns and maintains an extensive LED ‘Under Veranda Lighting Network’ that lights the Town Centre each evening.
A number of the Town Centre trees have had decorative lighting installed which creates a positive ambiance within the Town Centre.
Service lanes are cleaned up yearly by the PBA.

9 Reasons Why Panmure is Good for Business

Panmure is a centrally located hub that is surrounded by both an extensive residential and commercial catchment area
It is well-serviced by public transport with a transport hub for buses right next to the Panmure Train Station and a fifteen-minute train journey to the Auckland CBD
Accessible road networks to the Central Eastern and East Auckland suburbs and to the motorway
Panmure is part of the local/central governments partnership known as the Tamaki Regeneration Vision that aims to construct a minimum of 7,500 homes and in doing so will double the population over the next 10–15 years in the Tamaki area

The PBA Story
The Panmure Commercial Association was founded in 1952 as a voluntary organisation with a focus on promotions.
In the early 1990’s, the Panmure Commercial Association in conjunction with the Auckland City Council forged a relationship based on the Canadian/USA Mainstreet (retail focused) model.
In 2011, we became a Business Improvement District (BID) which represents the diversity of businesses in our area and is not solely retail focused. Businesses and organisations which are within the boundary of our BID area become one of our members automatically.
Each of our 150 building owners, within a defined commercial area of Panmure, pays a special targeted rate that is collected by Auckland Council in the annual rates bill. This fund is then distributed back to the PBA in quarterly instalments and is to be used for projects and promotions within the town centre.
Each October at the Annual General Meeting, an Executive Committee (also known as a Board) consisting of up to eleven building and business owners or managers within the BID area, are elected to set the strategic direction of the Association, to decide how this targeted rate grant is to be spent, and are tasked to ensure that they are spent wisely in an effective programme.
