Who is Napier City Business Inc?
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 (Link to Map) based on the capital value of the buildings that are within this boundary plus a contribution from Napier City Council.
Who can become a member?
Anyone who owns a business or building within the CBD boundary. (Link to Map)
