Tourism and Urban Development in the Albert-Eden Area: building local economies and ‘sense of place’
NZTRI is working with the Albert-Eden Local Board (Auckland Council) on a research programme that is designed to stimulate local economic activity by raising the profile of the Albert-Eden area as a visitor destination. This type of local economic development can best be achieved by working with local businesses, visitor attractions and with residents to better understand the area’s identity and create a shared vision for local tourism.
The research highlights just how visible and interactive six locations in the Albert-Eden area are from a visitor’s perspective. These locations are Mt Eden Village, Eden Valley, Mt Albert, Greenwood's Corner, Kingsland and Sandringham
The aim of the research is to inform the development of local approaches to maximise visitor yield and interaction – with an emphasis on community engagement and the development of a 'sense of place' for each of these diverse communities. A copy of all six presentations can be downloaded below as well as a podcast of the Sandringham presentation.
