Project to improve business

Drop in sessions will be hosted by the North West District Business Association for businesses to tap into the proposed Business Improvement District (BID).

The project is aimed at linking the seven townships from Kaukapakapa and Riverhead, in a drive to boost economic development.

Association members are hosting the events, leading up to a ballot in March to determine whether the BID goes ahead. All business and commercial property owners in the targeted areas are eligible to vote. There will also be a public meeting on February 4 from 6.30pm at Provenance Matua Valley (rebranded Bees Online), 791 State Highway 16, Waimauku.

It includes a guest speaker and presentation of the association's intended business plan. All business and commercial property owners from Kaukapakapa, Helensville and Parakai to Waimauku, Huapai, Kumeu and Riverhead are welcome.

Drop in sessions are:

February 13 at Parakai Springs private function, 5pm-7pm.

February 20 at Full Moon Cafe, Waimauku, 5pm-7pm.

February 25 at Helensville Pioneer Museum, Tuesday, 5pm-7pm.

Please RSVP to campaign manager Robynne Pringle at or phone 021 909 415. Business and commercial property owners can also go to for more information.
