TRC consultants Brad Kirner and Kylie Ruwhiu-Karawana are spending time this week in the beautiful town of Ōpōtiki in the Eastern Bay of Plenty looking into the development of a destination planning framework. With a range of natural assets, strong cultural connections, passionate people and rich stories to tell, there is a lot to work with. Add to that the fantastic kai moana (seafood) available and you have a recipe for a compelling destination with strong opportunities into the future.
