A proposal before the Howick Local Board tonight will introduce tourism & business precinct plans to the area.
The board’s 2015-26 Howick economic development programme, up for approval tonight, includes developing a tourism plan promoting the ward’s identity & key attractions.
Under the programme, the board would work with council-controlled Ateed (Auckland Tourism, Events & Economic Development Ltd) on an audit of economic & business precinct plans and to co-ordinate the approach to economic development in the area. It will include reviewing the East Tamaki business precinct plan and integrated industrial business plan.
The council’s local economic development advisor, Luo Lei, said in a report for tonight’s meeting Ateed staff had spoken to the key members of Howick Tourism Group & other tourism operators, including Howick Historical Village, Howick Village, Uxbridge Gallery, Fo Guang Shan Buddhist Temple & Pakuranga Golf Club for initial engagement on developing a Howick tourism plan.
