taradale_upgrade_1__600x214Taradale Napier.    The Taradale & District Community Development Association (TDA) is an organisation for people who are passionate about Taradale. We strive to make Taradale an even safer, more attractive place in which to live, work, shop and play. Taradale is a thriving suburb of Napier in Hawke's Bay.


We work constructively with the Council and the community towards that end. Submissions are written and occasional battles are fought and usually won. From time to time we hold public meetings to inform residents of upcoming changes that will affect us. Recent meetings have been about the upgrade to the Shopping Centre and the review of the Liquor Licensing laws. The TDA also works with other organizations such as the Shopping Centre Association and the Friends of the Library to further their goals for better facilities for the citizens of Taradale and surrounding districts. Such collaborations often have very positive results such as the lighting of Taradale's iconic Clocktower achieved in conjunction with the Returned Services' Association..

See our projects page for a taste of what else we have achieved, what projects are current and what is intended in the future. We welcome ideas for other initiatives that will enhance Taradale for all of its residents.

We welcome new members, between the ages of 10 & 110 years (exceptions can be made to this ruling), whether they be hands on, in boots and all, or passively supportive. The annual sub is only $5 for a single member, $10 for a couple, $20 for a group (club) and $30 for corporate membership. Our secretary, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
