Glen Innes Business Association
Glen Innes Village is the outward facing brand of the Glen Innes Business Association, which has been serving our local business community since its incorporation in 1968. The Glen Innes Business Association is a not for profit Incorporated Society currently representing over 140 member businesses in the Glen Innes precinct.
We provide a wide range of services for members including the promotion of Glen Innes as a business and shopping area, hosting events to attract people to the precinct as well as member networking events and regular member communication. A key role of the Glen Innes Business Association is the liaison and engagement with Auckland Council and other authorities to bring about improvements to the area and lobby for the interest of the businesses.
The association operates under their own Constitution (click here to view constitution) and assists with economic development in our town centre including assisting with the business needs of our members.
.Made up of members of the business community, the Business Association Committee is elected every year at the AGM. The current committee members are:
Treasurer: Kristine Strathern – Glen Innes Library
Christine Thompson – New Beginnings
Linda Pearce – New Beginnings
Frank Wong - Frog Prints
Peter McGlashan - Maungakiekie Tamaki Local Board
Business Improvement District (BID)
The Glen Innes Business Association is also one of 51 Business Improvement Districts in Auckland and the relationship between Auckland Council and the business association is guided by a BID Policy, which was updated in 2022. BID’s are funded by an additional rate known as a ‘targeted rate’, paid by all business and commercial property owners within the defined area. Although council collects the rate for the BID, it does not spend the rate. 100% of the targeted rate money collected by council is granted to the BID Executive Committee. The Committee determines how this money is spent via its Strategic Plan and annual business plan and budget as agreed at each year’s Annual General Meeting (AGM).

To find out how much your business is paying into the BID programme, see the reverse side of your commercial rates invoice.
