The Tapuae Roa: Make Way for Taranaki project is a collaborative effort between New Plymouth District Council, South Taranaki District Council, Stratford District Council, Taranaki Regional Council, Venture Taranaki, local business leaders, iwi and central government (MBIE).
The project takes on a whole-of-region approach and focuses on unlocking the best opportunities for regional economic growth and the on-going success of the region.
The lead team is made up of representatives from local businesses and organisations, iwi and central and local government. They are responsible for the strategic direction and oversight of the project.
The Tapuae Roa Strategy identifies a long list of potential opportunities to help form a regional action plan. This action plan is due for release in December 2017.
