Upper Hutt has a vision for its economy; we attract new investment and we offer opportunities for people and business to grow. This is part of our Long Term Plan and it is both aspirational and current.

Investing in Upper Hutt is an attractive and rewarding opportunity for astute investors living locally or further afield. As part of our plan promise, we are actively promoting our city as a place to do business.

Our prospectus is an introduction to our city: its location, landscape, lifestyle, business community and support, economy, and investment opportunities.

We are now in the process of refining a robust economic development strategy that will catalyse sustainable business and compound value for business owners employees, residents, and visitors.
