Napier City Business Incorporated
Napier City Business Inc was first incorporated in 1998. Although our look and feel has evolved over the years, our primary focus is still much the same. We represent around 450 members and landlords who reside within our membership boundary. The boundary is Marine Parade from the right-hand side of Browning Street to Vautier Street and goes to Clive Square, up Tennyson and everything in between. We are an independent organisation, funded by the way of a targeted levy on all commercial buildings in the rateable area (see Map) based on the capital value of the buildings that are within this boundary plus a contribution from the Napier City Council.
We are a small team of 3 people or 1.7FTEs. Our functions cover marketing members, business support, arts & heritage, operations, advocacy, and strategy. In simple terms, we are the connectors, celebrators, educators and advocators of all things in the Napier CBD. We enable activities that promote the economic development of the area, assist with the attraction and retention of new business and act as the voice of Napier City.
