About Us

The Panmure Business Association (PBA) is a not for profit organisation registered as an incorporated society under the Incorporated Societies Act. 

Our business association has a long history. Originally called the Panmure Commercial Association, it was founded as a voluntary organisation in 1952. In 2011, the PBA became a Business Improvement District (BID). 

The PBA promotes and supports over 200 businesses and commercial property owners. We represent our businesses as a collective voice and advocate for them. Throughout the year, we also focus on bringing activities and events to Panmure to support a thriving business community. 

The Panmure Business Association operates under a Constitution. During the Annual General Meeting, usually held the first Monday of October, the PBA Executive Committee (also known as 'The Board') is elected. They are responsible for the governance and strategic direction of the PBA and its BID program. The BID Programme is funded by a BID Targeted Rate Grant

What is a Business Improvement District (BID) Programme?

BID Programmes provide a mechanism and a relationship between the Panmure Business Association and Auckland Council. 
The Business Improvement Districts (BID) programme currently operates in 51 areas within Auckland. In these commercial areas, local businesses and property owners have agreed to work together to provide value to the collective business community by delivering a suite of economic activities. 
Find the PBA's projects here
Auckland Council supports Business Associations operating BID programmes as set out in Auckland Council's BID Policy 2022. Find more information about the BID Programme here.

The BID Targeted Rate Process

Auckland Council supports business associations by applying the BID targeted rate. This is collected directly from the ratepayer/property owner, or indirectly, by the business owner/tenant located within the BID Boundary area
The BID targeted rate is calculated as a percentage on the capital value of the commercial rated properties located within the BID boundary area
The PBA are provided these funds quarterly as a BID Targeted Rate Grant. These are used for projects to help economic growth for the Panmure BID.  See below for a map of Panmure's BID area.
