The Future Development Strategy sets out how we plan to manage and guide the expected growth in Tauranga City and the Western Bay of Plenty District over the next 30 years.

To keep up with projected population growth, we need to plan for an additional 43,000 homes in Tauranga and the surrounding towns.

About 80% of projected growth will be located within Tauranga, including within the existing urban area as well as new urban growth areas located around the edges of the city.  We expect that more people will be living in new housing built at higher densities than has been the case in the past.

The remaining 20% of projected population growth will be located in towns such as Katikati, Omokoroa, Te Puke and possibly other areas that are currently rural.

We would like to hear from you about how we can best manage this growth, while continuing to ensure that our city, towns and rural areas remain great places to live, learn, work and play.
