About Us

Far North Holdings Limited (FNHL) is the commercial arm of the Far North District Council, tasked with a specific Statement of Intent to drive economic and community development across the region. 

Operating commercially over the past 17 years, FNHL has pioneered numerous economic and community initiatives across Northland and stands at the forefront of stimulating growth and prosperity for the benefit of Far North ratepayers.
Notable projects include - Opua Marina,  the Ngawha Innovation and Enterprise Park (NIEP), 60 homes with Te Hau Ora O Ngapuhi through its subsidiary Far North Housing, community projects such as Manea, Te Hononga and Ngawha Springs and others.
These projects have attracted significant investment into the region and have created a wealth of employment opportunities, enhancing the quality of life for local communities. 

Through a maritime contract with FNDC , FNHL has secured funding that has enabled the company to deliver key community marine infrastructure projects at Hokianga, Mangonui, Unahi, Pukenui, Paihia, Russell and Opua.

Economic & Community Outcomes 

Our strategic approach has mitigated the need for higher general rates, with FNHL's activities helping reduce rates by securing grant funding for key infrastructure that would otherwise be funded via the LTP, contributing directly $360,000 a year in rates itself from the property it has built and owns and in paying council an annual dividend.

We are dedicated to delivering tangible benefits to our community, including local whānau, businesses and ratepayers.


In addition to the direct positive impact that our asset portfolio delivers our investments and strategic management continues to have a wide reach, uplifting and supporting the community that we serve.
