Palmerston North City

Palmerston North City Living Lab is a partnership between Palmerston North City Council and Massey University, and committed to addressing issues in Palmerston North. PNCC has generously contributed through its Long Term Plan 10 years of funding towards the Living Lab relationship.

Projects to date include student research on peri-urban subdivision, sustainable housing and sustainable city strategies. These projects are feeding into the work of the PNCC.
