The Waimakariri District is showing good growth in the latest Infometrics Quarterly Economic Monitor to September.

The provisional 3.0% growth estimate for GDP in the Waimakariri District is above the national average of 2.5%.

Tourism expenditure, retail spending and the population also increased, while the housing market showed a drop, with declines in both house sales and residential building consents.

Overall, the report states that prospects for the District are positive, citing a higher total dairy payout, improved beef and lamb returns and the alleviation of road transport pressures with the completion of the Belfast western bypass.
