City Vision

The City Vision is an over-arching strategy that sets a direction and framework for Napier City Council’s new way of working. It was adopted by Council in 2016, and establishes a range of potential future projects using a new ‘lighter, quicker, cheaper’ and more collaborative approach to interactions with the business and wider community. Although City Vision includes multiple strategies and initiatives, these should be viewed purely as ideas, rather than as a programme of projects to be ticked off at pre-determined times. Cities and opportunities continually evolve and this document marks a moment in time. Initiatives included in City Vision will only come to fruition if the time is right and the initiative is seen as a priority project.

Cycleway Strategy

The Cycleway Strategy covers the development of cycle routes and footpaths in Napier and promotes the health and fitness benefits of walking and cycling.

Retail Strategy

This strategy manages future development of retailing in Napier, enabling the community to provide for their social, economic and cultural well-being.

Joint Alcohol Strategy

Napier City and Hastings District Councils working together to reduce alcohol related harm across the two cities, focussing on areas that Councils can influence to work towards a safe and health community.

Coastal Processes

Coastal Communities around New Zealand, and the world, are becoming increasingly aware of coastal hazards, such as coastal inundation (flooding by the sea), coastal erosion and tsunami. In Napier we have faced these hazards in the past and understand some of the concerns. We can use this knowledge to look ahead to ensure we are prepared to deal with the challenges of coastal hazards in the future, creating more resilient communities.

Aquatics Strategy

Aquatic facilities are unique community assets that provide significant health, fitness and social benefits to the Napier and wider Hawke’s Bay community. The purpose of the Aquatic Strategy is to set the direction for the provision of aquatic space that will meet Napier City’s needs for the next 30 years.

Activate Napier-Placemaking Strategy

Activate Napier is a placemaking strategy and city activation plan. Placemaking is an identified city reinvention tool, and is a public space planning and management approach that centres on people's experiences of a place.
