The Future Development Strategy will guide decision making and inform our planning including our resource management plans (like the District Plan), infrastructure and transport plans and Council’s Long Term Plan.
The Strategy will expand on the work on 2021 Growth Strategy, Whangārei Housing and Business Land Capacity Assessment 2021 and other plans and reports.
Whangārei District Growth Strategy
Whangārei Housing and Business Land Capacity Assessment 2021(PDF, 425KB)
It aims to promote long term strategic planning by setting out how we will:
- Achieve ‘well-functioning urban environments’ in our existing and future urban areas, and
- Provide enough housing and business land capacity
- Achieve better integration between infrastructure planning and funding decisions.
The strategy is an opportunity reassess where we are heading as a district. It presents an opportunity to have informed conversations about how Whangārei will grow in the future, map out the opportunities and constraints that currently exist and to build a long term pathway to collectively achieve the environmental, economic, social and cultural outcomes we all want to see.
We will be carrying out engagement on these outcomes as part of preparing the Future Development Strategy.
