Matamata-Piako benefits from Provincial Growth Fund

Posted 5 October 2018 by Gold FM in Council Matters and Business

Matamata-Piako is hoping a $1.7million funding injection from the Provincial Growth Fund will lead to a tourism and industry boom.

Matamata-Piako District Council submitted two applications to the fund following a meeting with Economic Development Minister Shane Jones in August when he visited the district. 

Approval of Council’s applications was announced by Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern at a lunch in Matamata yesterday.

The two approved projects are $900,000 towards a feasibility study and business investment case for a Te Aroha tourism precinct, and $800,000 towards a feasibility study for a Waharoa industry hub.
