There's a lot of support available to businesses right now, and we want to make it easier for Whanganui business owners to find and access the resources they need. We've put together this free, online tool to point you in the right direction.
The main idea behind the process is to streamline processes and remove obstacles that get in the way of business growth. We do this primarily through the Business Friendly Group, a cohort of relevant Council and Whanganui & Partners staff who work directly with business owners to provide assistance and support.
A business looking to expand or relocate in Whanganui will get in touch with Whanganui & Partners or the Whanganui District Council. You'll then be connected to the Whanganui & Partners Business Friendly facilitator.
Depending on your particular needs, your facilitator will identify which Council team members need to be involved in the project and will facilitate a meeting with the right people. This includes staff from our Property, Infrastructure, Building Control, Regulatory, Planning and Communications teams.
Going forward,the facilitator provides assistance, suggestions and maintains the relationship between you and the Council. The facilitator will remain involved until you have all the information and support you need to move forward with your project.
Use our Business Enquiry form to get in touch with Rhonda Morris, Whanganui & Partners' Strategic Lead - Manufacturing, Logistics and Commercial. Once she understands your business needs, she'll identify the relevant members of the Business Friendly Group and initiate the first meeting.
