Nelson has seen a steady increase in mountain biking participation from both residents and visitors. The Nelson Council commissioned BERL to undertake research in order to better understand the benefits the activity can bring to the community.
Regional development is economic development within a defined geographic (or other) area. Like economic development, it requires you to know where you want to be, or what you want to achieve.
Often it involves understanding where you currently are, your resources and areas of comparative advantage, and the environment that you are operating in.
BERL has detailed regional datasets that can identify what is happening in your regional economy – past and present. We can even provide scenarios on how your regional economy might look at some point in the future.
Applying frameworks that incorporate latest thinking and approaches, we can work with you to achieve your regional development objectives.
If you wish to find out more, we are more than happy to talk to you.
