BID Expansion 2017

What can the UPTOWN Business Improvement District (BID) do for you?

The Eden Terrace / Mt Eden area will experience major change due to growth associated with the Auckland Unitary Plan and the City Rail Link project.


It is vital that all businesses have a voice to ensure negative effects on the area are minimised and benefits maximised.

The Uptown Business Association is talking with businesses in the Mt Eden area, seeking support to extend the BID boundary to include Normanby Rd, Boston Rd, Mt Eden Road and surrounding streets from 1 July 2017.
