BHB to help in economic growth
By CAROLYN VEEN
Business Hawke s Bay has a plan to
boost the region s economy, but they re
not letting the secret out just yet, not
even to the Napier City Council.
Hawke s Bay Chamber of Commerce
vice president Doug Ducker told a council
committee meeting last week that all
would be revealed on February 29, when
BHB is officially launched at the Hawke s
Bay Opera House in Hastings.
We have a plan to systematically
attract new businesses, but publicly I m
not going to tell you how we do it because
10 other outfits in New Zealand would
love to know, said Mr Ducker, who is
also the general manager of Pan Pac For-
Business Hawke s Bay is an initiative
of the Hawke s Bay Chamber of Com-
It was set up six months ago following
discussions with local councils and
sponsors about how best to foster busi-
ness growth and development, and to
promote the Bay as an attractive place to
start, grow and relocate business.
Operating alongside the Chamber,
BHB is a separate entity with an arms-
length governance board made up of
private-sector senior managers.
Chamber s chief executive Murray
Douglas is leading the BHB team.
It is surprising how easy it is to find
businesses that want to come here; and
surprisingly hard to find ways to shoe-
horn them in.
That s an issue for councils to look at
. . . they need to start preparing land,
right now, for the future. We re working
on a number of projects, including
Whakatu and the Airport Business Park,
but we need councils to get other land
sites ready for marketing, otherwise
what are we selling?
The worst thing we deal with at the
moment is bringing outfits to the sites,
and then councils tell us the sites won t
be ready, with sewerage etc, for two or
If we don t aspire, in Hawke s Bay,
then we ll just get more of the same -- a
stagnating population that s aging. At
the end of the day, it s about jobs, and
there s so much potential here. For a
start we ve got a ton of sky; which means
there s a lot of air space for pilot training
school. This is being looked into at the
During the BHB s presentation at last
week s tourism and economic develop-
ment committee meeting, Napier City
councillor Mark Herbert asked the BHB
team if they would be interested in pro-
moting the city council s proposed busi-
ness park opposite Parklands, which is
roughly 100 acres.
Absolutely, when can we have it?
asked Mr Douglas.
Right now, said Mr Herbert.
Budget for appeals
How to deal with the cost of appeals to the
Environment Court will vex regional councillors
The cost of having its resource consent decisions
appealed to the Environment Court has cost the
Hawke s Bay Regional Council more than
$200,000 during the last 18 months.
A report to today s environmental management
committee says the appeal against the decision on
the Affco meat processing plant in Wairoa had so
far cost more than $100,000, with another $80,000
likely to be accrued during the second six months
of this financial year.
Council staff were recommending a budget for
such costs be introduced, that council lobby cen-
tral Government for changes to the Resource Man-
agement Act to weed out appeals based on what
appear to be both frivolous and vexatious
grounds , and consider seeking costs from the
appellant through court processes.
Come the revolution:
John Butler enjoyed an
appreciative audience of
just under 1700 people
on Friday night, as the
More FM Summer
Vineyard Tour, featuring
the John Butler Trio, rolled
up to Sileni Estates in
Opening acts Tiki Taane
and Annabel Fay were well
received, but when
American soul singer Aloe
Blacc and band The Grand
Scheme began their set
the crowd got up to dance
and many stayed on their
feet to welcome John
Butler to the stage. His
infectious mix of jazz/funk
and reggae were what the
audience had come to
hear and they roared with
appreciation when he
proved he had done his
Hawke's Bay homework,
