Large development's potential impact on Napier's art deco CBD to be considered

The impact a large commercial development on the outskirts of Napier would have on the city's art deco centre is being considered by Napier City Council staff after they received an application that would create 16 new stores.

Goldroy Holdings No. 2 Ltd has applied for resource consent to build a multi-unit development over 1.9hectares near the corner of the Napier-Hastings expressway and Taradale Road.

The area is zoned industrial and the proposed activity is not permitted under the district plan, so requires resource consent.

Net migration levels steady

Annual net migration was provisionally estimated at 53,200 (± 900) in the year ended February 2019 compared with 51,500 in the previous year, Stats NZ said today.

“Increases for both migrant arrivals and migrant departures meant that there was a slight increase in net migration in the year ended February 2019,” population indicators manager Tehseen Islam said.

“Annual net migration has fluctuated between 49,000 and 55,000 since the year ended October 2017.”

Kiwis keep commercial accommodation busy through winter

New Zealanders stayed 2.7 percent more nights in hotels, motels, backpackers, and holiday parks in July 2019 than in July 2018, Stats NZ said today.

Kiwis spent over 1.7 million nights in short-term commercial accommodation in July 2019.

“Domestic guest nights in July months have risen consistently over the last seven years, increasing more than New Zealand’s population over the same period," accommodation statistics manager Melissa McKenzie said.
