South Waikato $53,550, Nelson $100,000

1 November 2001 Media Statement
Regional development plans:
South Waikato $53,550, Nelson $100,000

Two more regions have formed regional partnership agreements with the government through Industry New Zealand’s Regional Partnership Programme, Regional Development Minister Jim Anderton announced today.

South Waikato region will receive $53,550 (including GST) and Nelson Tasman will receive $100,000 (including GST) to further develop and refine the production of a regional economic development strategy.

This announcement takes the regions developing strategies to 23 and the amount allocated by Industry New Zealand for the Regional Partnership programme to $2,666,867.

Jim Anderton today welcomed South Waikato and Nelson and their commitment to developing their local economies.

"The commitment and enthusiasm that local people have for their regions is being turned into sustainable businesses and real jobs through the regional partnerships programme. I am pleased to see South Waikato and Nelson/Tasman involved now as well." said Regional Development Minister Jim Anderton.

"I know that in both regions the partnerships will have significant benefit to local people through the Regional Partnerships Programme.

"The ideas that each plan needs will come from local groups, iwi and individuals and then these can be developed into ten year plans," said Jim Anderton.

The partnership grants can be up to $100,000 for regional plans and up to $100,000 for making sure the plans can be implemented (capability building). Funding of up to $2 million per region is available to contribute to major regional initiatives that come out of the strategies developed in the first two stages.

Gordon Campbell: On Bridges’ ‘Meth Crooks’ Leadership Failure

Back in June, Bridges publicly accepted that Housing NZ had got it wrong, and that the National government had acted upon bad advice.

Now, you’d think this admission would create a broad bi-partisan basis for compensation to those families who had been unfairly evicted, at considerable cost and emotional distress. Some people had lost their possessions in trying to meet the expense of the upheaval.

Not everyone felt so compassionate. More>>
