“New Plymouth is Taranaki’s powerhouse. The decisions we take now to rebuild our economy must create a sustainable platform for our children and grandchildren to thrive.

NP Partners offers opportunities to invest strategically in our district through a managed programme with NPDC. We look forward to working with you.”

— Neil Holdom, New Plymouth District Mayor

“If ever there has been a time to be united in a vision for our future, it’s now. The passion, pride and purpose that exists in our people today can be channelled through NP Partners, a public and private sector partnership that will harness the energy to shape our region’s future.’’

‘’New Plymouth is located in a unique part of New Zealand and is overshadowed by the mighty presence of our maunga.
