Tourism and Urban Development in the Albert-Eden Area: building local economies and ‘sense of place’
Led by Simon Milne this is the first externally funded project in NZTRI’s ‘Get Local’ Auckland-focused research programme. Funded by the Albert-Eden Local Board, the aim of this research is to gather and present information that will inform the development of local approaches to maximise visitor-community interaction and increase local economic yield in a sustainable fashion. This research focuses on identifying issues, challenges and opportunities facing the development of the local visitor industry for six local areas: Mt Albert, Kingsland, Greenwoods Corner, Sandringham, Mt Eden Village, and Eden Valley. The elements of this research include web audits, -on-site visits, and community presentations.
