Covid-19 Recovery Plan

Napier City Council is aware of the specific issues facing our community as we slowly emerge from the pandemic. Our recovery plans will focus on the key issues for our city, and how we can complement government initiatives at the local level.

Napier City Response to Recovery Approach 

Many of Napier's residents are employed in the retail, accommodation and food services, and transport sectors. All of these are directly impacted by the huge decline in the tourism market as a result of COVID-19, and by the trade restrictions Alert Level 3 & 4 lockdown. Further, much of Napier's economy relies on small-medium sized businesses that will be feeling the effects of continued costs with significantly reduced income. Reduced income and continued restrictions will place additional stress on Napier's households through Alert Level 2 and beyond.

Napier City Council is aware of these specific issues facing our community. The Napier City Response and Recovery Planning focuses on the key issues for our city, and how we can complement government initiatives at the local level.

We have released our Response to Recovery Plan for Napier. We encourage all businesses, households and individuals to Make a Plan to support their own recovery. We also encourage our community to Support Local businesses and communities, so together, we can recover from the impacts of COVID-19. Napier City Council will support these two initiatives through advocacy, partnerships and supplementary financial relief.

Underpinning the Napier City Recovery Plan will be a core focus on the economic, social, cultural and environmental wellbeing of our local community. If you have any ideas or information to assist the development of the Recovery Plan, you can email us at, or give us a call on 06 835 7579.
