The Marsden Point and Ruakaka Structure Plan identifies the outcomes for living, working, playing and protecting the area based on the growth of work opportunities.
This plan illustrates the ultimate development potential over time of an area in Ruakākā. It would create a satellite for Whangarei based on the requirements of the port at Marsden Point. Sufficient industrial land is proposed and zoned to cater for the growth of imports and exports as well as ancillary industrial uses.
The plan also recognises that people working in the area should be able to live, shop and play there. Large residential areas, open space and business development should be available to support this.
Implementation of the Structure Plan proposals is directly linked to the uptake of industrial land and creation of work opportunities. This will determine the growth rate.
