The Tai Tokerau Northland Economic Action Plan (TTNEAP) was developed in response to a 2015 Growth Study that identified economic opportunities to grow investment, jobs and revenue from key sectors in the region.

The Action Plan brings together  and drives projects that are contributing to transforming Taitokerau Northland's economy and social development. Refreshed in 2019 and 2021, the Action Plan evolves alongside the region to continue to drive growth.  



Projects within the Action Plan contribute to the following priority outcomes for the region. 

Working towards these outcomes is vital to enable economic growth and, in turn, ensure that Taitokerau Northland communities are both prosperous and resilient.  

Updates on project progress and outcomes can be found within the latest version of the Action Plan.
