Council commitment to tourism remains

Nelson City Council will fund Nelson Tasman Tourism (NTT) in 2014/15 with a $426,000 contribution.

Nelson City and Tasman District Councils are equal shareholders of NTT and have provided equal funding to the organisation since its inception. Tasman District Council decided last week to reduce its funding to NTT in 2014/15, subject to Annual Plan approval.

NTT is in the process of planning for the 2014/15 year, preparing its Statement of Intent to both councils. Nelson City Council’s contribution remains, as provided for in the Long Term Plan 2012/22

Future funding for NTT will be addressed in the Long Term Plan 2015/25 process.
