Extract:

  • The number of people in the city and other centres around Auckland from 6pm is down from pre-pandemic levels.
  • Spending data indicate that while people are spending roughly the same amount of money as they did last year, the composition has changed in what and where people spend.
  • Businesses (especially in hospitality) in these centres are struggling, which puts the vitality of local economies at risk.
  • Getting people back into our town and city centres will require a concerted effort.
