From Executive Summary
Grey Lynn is a diverse and continually evolving collection of individually characterful communities. Whilst each area is unique in appeal, demographic and performance, they share similar values which prioritise social and environmental sustainability – important differentiators that attract like-minded businesses and consumers. A multi-cultural, creative and artisan heritage has fostered a strongly independent theme for Grey Lynn’s traders and commercial centres. It has also supported the development of both emerging and established niche specialities that the area has become known for around food, creative and lifestyle products. Grey Lynn’s consumer offer has developed, organically – driven by a collaborative commercial community and enthusiastic local support. This has created opportunities for talented entrepreneurs to grow & prosper, surrounded by supportive traders and consumers who value unique shops, services and food and beverage offers. Despite these benefits, most are small businesses, especially vulnerable to changes in demand or profitability. Supporting and enhancing their economic sustainability is vital for continued success of the area.
