impact of COVID-19

Everyone is grappling with what the ongoing impact of COVID-19 will be.

This means there’s uncertainty for the DCC, the local economy and the community about what will happen over the next few years.

The DCC has an important role to play in the way the city recovers, economically and socially. However, the uncertainty created by COVID-19 means developing long term budgets is a big challenge.

Lockdowns or alert level changes are likely to affect the economy, change how we talk to our community and possibly hold up work on big projects because of supply chain delays.

Revenue from some of our activities has been impacted by COVID-19, but we think it will slowly recover as international visitors return to our city.

It’s a big challenge to balance all the things that need to be taken into account.
