Towncentre Taupo (TCT) represents the interests of every business in Taupo's central business district. All such businesses, as defined by Taupo District Council, are, by default, members of TCT. TCT's primary aim is to promote the development of Taupo's town centre as a safe and vibrant community balancing social, environmental and economic needs while retaining its unique identity.
Towncentre Taupo (TCT) became an incorporated society in 2005. It is funded by a special annual rate or a levy which is paid by members through rates to Taupo District Council. This rate is returned to TCT to cover expenses, business development and promotion initiatives within the town centre.
