Chairman’s Welcome

All businesses in the New Forest felt the effects of the global downturn to some extent and have concerns about the future. Economic uncertainty demonstrates one clear truth: the need to work together.

NFBP enables closer working between local business and local government. Whilst this principle sits at the heart of the Partnership, our focus is broader with NFBP offering a range of really useful events, networking opportunities and information as well as bringing together a wide variety of partners and stakeholders on our influential and dynamic Board. NFNP is ideally placed to broaden the connections of our members as we deliver the New Forest’s economic development strategy.

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 forwards by our Board members, representing businesses and communities across the New Forest, we provide an influential voice to ensure that our New Forest is a great place to do business.

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

Matthew Lawson
