Kaikōura Economic Recovery Governance Group

KK View Default

The Kaikōura Economic Recovery Governance Group (KERGG) is a partnership between Kaikōura District Council and Te Rūnanga o Kaikōura with a purpose to develop a recovery plan for Kaikōura in response to the impact of COVID-19 on our local economy.

The time frame is short, as everyone else in the country is doing the same prior to Government election stand-down. To gain the most insight into the needs of the community and to enable us to lobby and advocate to central government effectively, we ask you to come to one of the community hui's or fill out the online survey here. We don’t know if we will be successful in receiving funding, but we want to try nonetheless.

We are asking for community input on the following:

• Environmental recovery projects
• Community led projects
• Education and training
• Business and tourism
• Health and social well-being


Community Hui’s will be held where you can come and speak to representatives from all sectors of the Kaikōura Economic Recovery Governance Group.

Wednesday 1 July
Memorial Hall: 10am – 1pm and 5pm – 7pm

Saturday 4 July
Memorial Hall: 10am – 1pm
Takahanga Marae: 5pm – 7pm


Or you can fill out an online survey here.
