Chairman’s Welcome

All businesses in the New Forest have concerns about the future. Economic uncertainty demonstrates one clear truth: the need to work together.

NFBP enables closer working between your local business and your local authorities. Whilst this principle sits at the heart of the Partnership, our focus is broader with NFBP offering you a range of really useful events, networking opportunities, education and training as well as bringing together a wide variety of partners and stakeholders on our influential and dynamic Board and Advisory Group. NFBP is ideally placed to broaden the connections of New Forest businesses as we grow the New Forest economy together.

NFBP is a key voice for businesses in the New Forest. We influence the New Forest National Park and the New Forest District Council's local plans. The Partnership has also been influential in changing NFDC's procurement policy to suit the needs of smaller local businesses. With the input of our members and driven forward by our Board and Advisory Group members, representing your businesses across the New Forest, we provide an influential voice.

I look forward to meeting you at one of our events soon!

Matthew Lawson
