Hundreds Of Jobs From Retirement Village Developments

With four new retirement villages in various stages of planning, new research suggests Hawke’s Bay can expect a $45 million economic boost and more than 300 new jobs, if they all pan out. Research carried out by PwC and commissioned by the Retirement Villages Association found the construction of a 250-unit village directly supported 303 full-time equivalent jobs and contributed about $21.4m in design, construction and fittings. “In the Hawke’s Bay, there are four villages in development (that we know of) totalling close to 550 independent living units and care beds,” RVA executive director John Collyns said.
