Introducing Manurewa Business Association
Welcome to the Manurewa Town Centre and the Manurewa Business Improvement District (BID).
The BID exists to strategically and operationally promote the wellbeing and vitality of the Manurewa Town Centre. It is managed by a Town Centre Manager, who is the representative of the committee of the Manurewa Business Association (MBA).
The Town Centre Manager (TCM) partners with various community and council based forums, liaising with organisations and businesses in actions that will promote and support the Town Centre and the local community to offer a diverse shopping experience in a safe and secure environment.
Working with Southmall management allows the MBA to provide successful events to the community, such as the Manurewa Community Expo, Santa Parade and the Elvis Festival . It also provides an environment of collaboration into strategic tasks where there is potential overlap between the two centres. This allows the Town Centre and Southmall to benefit collectively to all who work and live in Manurewa.
The Manurewa Business Association works with the Manurewa Local Board, Town Centre Retailers and Key Stakeholders to implement projects, and provide updates in strategic Auckland Council policy changes, such as bylaws, to the business and land owners in the town centre. A sample of these projects include Town Centre Tidy-Ups, Graffiti reporting, and seasonal promotional competitions. There is a large amount of advocacy in regard to bylaw changes with Auckland Council, advocating and promoting the best interests of the town centre.
The work of the Business Association also involves various stakeholders. The Manurewa Local Board, Nathan Homestead, the Manurewa Botanical Gardens, to name a few. There is a capacity of the BA to improve the town centre in a large variety of facets, through consultation with Auckland Council, Local Board, graffiti teams and other stakeholders.
