Napier City Council is aware of the specific issues facing our community as we slowly emerge from the pandemic. Our recovery plans will focus on the key issues for our city, and how we can complement government initiatives at the local level.
This report provides insight into how the Napier community is feeling about the COVID-19 pandemic, its impacts (positive and negative), concerns, and expectations about life in Napier moving forward. The information helps to inform our recovery planning and other Council programmes.
The Napier Recovery Plan is our medium term plan for Napier's recovery from the pandemic. The Napier Recovery Plan identifies six goals:
Read the Napier Recovery Plan here:
Many of Napier's residents are employed in the retail, accommodation and food services, and transport sectors. All of these are directly impacted by the huge decline in the tourism market as a result of COVID-19, and by the trade restrictions seen during Alert Level 3 & 4. Further, much of Napier's economy relies on small-medium sized businesses that will be feeling the effects of continued costs with significantly reduced income. Reduced income will place additional stress on Napier's households through Alert Level 2 and beyond.
Napier City Council is aware of these specific issues facing our community. The Napier City Response and Recovery Planning focuses on the key issues for our city, and how we can complement government initiatives at the local level.
We have released our Napier Recovery Plan. We encourage all businesses, households and individuals to Make a Plan to support their own recovery. We also encourage our community to Support Local businesses and communities, so together, we can recover from the impacts of COVID-19. Napier City Council will support these two initiatives through advocacy, partnerships and supplementary financial relief.
