New Plymouth District Council

 

Welcome to the NPDC area of this site.

The New Plymouth District Council has assets of $2 billion and an annual operating budget of around $120 million. It employs around 500 staff. The day-to-day operation is overseen by the CEO, Barabara McKerrow, and four general managers namely Frank Versteeg (Strategy and Policy), Cathy Thurston (Customer Services), Anthony Wilson (Community Assets) and Steve Taylor (Support Services). There are 14 elected Councillors and the Mayor to oversee the policy and direction of the NPDC.

The NPDC has an important direct impact on our daily lives including the level of services provided, our rates and the general well-being of our community. Grey Power therefore allocates a committee member to monitor the performance of the NPDC, attend Council meetings, review NPDC documents (such as the Long Term Community Plan and the annual budget) and make recommendations to the committee for submissions to Council on a wide variety of matters affecting Grey Power members. Your current representative is Keith Allum who can be contacted via the details on the home page.
