RotoruaNZ has published its first annual report on the region’s destination management plan.
ChristchurchNZ chief executive Ali Adams is confident the region’s destination management plan will be put into action despite no clear method of how it will be funded.
“I think the question around implementation of destination management plans, that’s still to be determined,” said ChristchurchNZ chief executive Ali Adams at TRENZ yesterday.
“The funding to develop the plan was provided by MBIE, and we have tried to make that funding go as far as possible by linking it with our own funding around city identity and doing that as a total package, which makes it much more effective and efficient, and so that’s been very valuable,” said Adams.
ChristchurchNZ was allocated $1.9m for two destination management plans as part of the wider $26.8m Tourism Communities: Support, Recovery and Re-Set Plan. These include one for Banks Peninsula with $400,000, and a $1.5m one for Christchurch and the broader surrounding region. Both are expected to be completed next month.
“The key here is that I genuinely believe we have brought our partners along for the journey,” said Adams.
“We can’t implement as an RTO all the things that are going to come out of a destination management plan, they’re going to cover a much broader range, whether it’s [Environment Canterbury] or the [Christchurch] City Council, or whoever else might have a role to play.”
Adams said ChristchurchNZ’s role has been to educate and bring those stakeholders with them on the DMP journey.
“Implementation of the destination management plans, for example, will form part of our long-term plan submission to council… because it’s pointless having a plan if we don’t actually implement it.
“So has it been determined – no, am I confident that it will be in place? Yes, I am actually confident we’ve done that management.”
She said ChristchurchNZ was also “unashamedly looking at attracting tourism here at scale”.
“We do need to do it in a way that absolutely is regenerative and thinks about the other capitals that we have our social capital and our physical and environmental capital – that goes without saying.
“But we do have the infrastructure in place to genuinely be making Christchurch a destination in its own right and looking to increase the length of that stay.”
