This website is owned and maintained by the Mairangi Bay Business Association. It is a directory of local businesses in Mairangi Bay Village and a community resource for residents and visitors to find information about the area. 

 

History

The first shop here was a general store, built in 1906 by Mr Pond. Once the Harbour Bridge was built, the area began to develop and Mairangi Bay Village was the first Auckland area to open on Saturday mornings. As the number of businesses increased they recognised the need for some sort of business association. The Mairangi Bay Business Association was formed  in June 1977 and has operated successfully since.

Mairangi Bay BID Programme

Business Improvement Districts (BID) programmes operate in over 50 areas within Auckland where local business and property owners have agreed to work together. BIDs in the Auckland region represent over 30,000 businesses and a Capital Value in excess of $72 billion (2022).

 Auckland Council (via their BID Policy 2022) supports Business Associations operating BID programmes by collecting the targeted rates and providing these funds, in their entirety, as a BID targeted rate grant to associations like the MBBA. Auckland Council applies the MBBA BID targeted rate which is collected from the ratepayer/property owner or indirectly by the business owner/tenant located within the MBBA BID boundary area.

 The MBBA BID targeted rate is calculated as a percentage on the capital value of the business rated properties located within the MBBA BID boundary area, to view a map visit: https://bid.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/Documents/BID%20rating%20maps/bidmap-mairangibay.pdf

 To see the targeted rate for your property visit this link:
https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/property-rates-valuations/Pages/find-property-rates-valuation.aspx

 100% of the targeted rate collected by Auckland Council is returned to the Business Association in four quarterly grant payments.

Benefits of Membership

  • Advocacy:

Advocating to Local Government; Council; CCO’s and National decision makers for improving the business environment is one of the most valuable services provided by a Business Association. Strong local advocacy and representation stops local issues being overlooked.

 We have developed strong relationships within the Hibiscus and Bays Local Board and present formal submissions and informal feedback to ensure our members’ views are considered in their decision-making process.

 Auckland Council utilise the Business Association (BID) as their point of contact to distribute policy information/changes, consultation documentation etc to make sure everyone is kept informed and given a chance to ‘have their say’.

 This means that businesses located outside BID boundaries are often unaware of impending policy changes.

 We are often the first to know and regularly lobby on behalf of local business and present professional submissions on Council or Transport proposals that could affect our area or your business.

 These submissions are distributed to all our members to read or use if making individual submissions.
