The Jackson Street Programme is an incorporated society set up in 1991. It promotes the street as a destination for shopping, dining, professional services, commercial services, and socialising, as well as its heritage. It also organises promotional and community events.
Its main source of funds is a targeted rate levied by the Hutt City Council on commercial ratepayers in the street. Every three years these businesses are polled to see whether they still support the rate. Funds also come from charitable donations and subscriptions paid by supporters and associate members.
Three part-time staff run the activities of the JSP from its office in the Historic Police Station, 274b Jackson Street, Petone.
The Board of the JSP is elected at an annual general meeting held each spring.
