Tourists will have more places to poop thanks to John Key


Another pre-budget announcement

The Government has announced an extra $20 million for the tourism sector to help communities deal with infrastructure problems.

The issue hit headlines recently with small towns under pressure due to the growing number of tourists visiting our shores.

It is estimated the number of freedom campers who rely on public facilities have already reached around 60,000 this year.

Prime Minister John Key says the tourism industry is doing well and the new initiatives will help it grow.

“We recognise that some of our smaller communities need extra facilities to deal with the increase in tourist numbers, and in particular manage freedom campers,” he said.

The cash injection will be divided over four years and split into two areas.

Of the new funding, $12 million will go towards a Regional Mid-size Tourism Facilities Fund for infrastructure means.

The remaining $8 million will go to Tourism New Zealand to target key growth markets.

It’s both necessary and appropriate that a government that’s working so hard to get tourists to New Zealand assists smaller councils and certain hot spots with more infrastructure to cope.

Would be nice if the government could do the same by freeing up more land to build on for all the immigrants.
