In a year of extraordinary change on a global scale, it was refreshing to be reminded of the strength and resilience of our businesses and broader community over the past year. Our population growth remains strong and house prices averaged $416K at the end of 2020, up 24.9 per cent from December 2019, all while we remain one of the country’s most affordable regions.
We work to promote Whanganui as a destination to live, visit, work, study and invest. Our activities also include supporting new and existing businesses, bringing events to Whanganui and providing the latest economic data, analysis and commentary on the Whanganui district.
Our relationships form an intrinsic part of our culture and how we work as an organisation. Along with our partners, we help with the facilitation of guidance or expertise. We lead in consultation with a range of partners and stakeholders and work with them to realise the full potential of Whanganui.
Our partnerships lead to better outcomes for our businesses and community.
