Our Strategic Priorities

In 2023, Napier City Council adopted five Strategic Priorities to guide its decision-making over the coming years. These Strategic Priorities are all of equal importance and are a tool to help us decide on what projects, activities and budgets to prioritise in our Long Term Plans.

Financially sustainable Council
Council has an operating model and financial strategy that is affordable for rate payers and enables us to achieve our objectives.

 A great visitor destination 
Napier is a destination aspiring to provide 'world class' facilities and attract visitors to our city. We make it easy for people to invest in our city and create experiences that attract widespread participation.

Spaces and places for all 
Napier has spaces and places that everyone has access to and wants to use. We have a focus on accessibility, affordability, safety, and city vibrancy.

A resilient city – the ability to thrive and withstand impacts, knocks and shocks  
Council makes good future planning and investment decisions to prepare for a changing climate future and enables our community to build self-reliance. Our people, economy and infrastructure are resilient.

Nurturing authentic relationships with our community and partners
