Community board plans

Community boards represent the interests of their local community. They consider and report on matters referred to them by the Council and maintain an overview of Council services to the community.

We have five community boards in New Plymouth District: Clifton, Inglewood, Waitara, Kaitake and Puketapu-Bell Block. 

The Community Board Plans have been developed by each community board in consultation with their community. They highlight each board's vision and community issues and aspirations for investment or action. 

The purpose of these plans is to build on the New Plymouth District Blueprint and facilitate a more integrated approach to planning, infrastructure development and community development in the community board areas. Development of the plans has been successful in encouraging grassroots engagement in our statutory planning and governance processes. 

The plans are being reviewed.  Feedback has now closed on all the plans.

Spatial Community Investment Plan

This Community Investment Plan (CIP) provides a spatial long-range view of projects that have been proposed, planned and funded in the Long-Term Plan 2021-2031, to meet the needs of our communities in the community board areas.

They identify projects that have been proposed by NPDC and the community boards, through the development of the community board plans, and the outcomes of those proposed projects following LTP2021-2031 deliberations by Council in June 2020.

The plan also identifies community projects that have been funded by the Community Boards Discretionary Fund.
