About

NP Partners is committed to investing in the growth and development of Ngāmotu, our city and district of New Plymouth.

We’re a partnership to create opportunities and source investment, in order to build a better community. To create the best of New Zealand.

NP Partners is a collectively inspired development forum, led by investors and facilitated by the Council. With the support of a dedicated public-private sector liaison team, we use our skills, experience, best people and networks to imagine the possibilities then source the investment that brings them to life.

NP Partners sits within an innovative regional development advisory framework. Find out more about how we work together.

Investment management

A group of future-focused companies, organisations and individuals have committed to NP Partners as Foundation Partners. Each has agreed with the New Plymouth District Council to support and invest in our community assets and outcomes. 

Over the last two decades this visionary collective has invested around $30m in our city and district.

“New Plymouth is a place like no other. This city is bold and brave,
sometimes unconventional and always welcoming. NP Partners
connects, elevates and propels its dynamic people. It embraces
a sustainable present and glorious future.”
