Placemaking Plans are a response to the growth and changes that are happening in the Whangārei District. While we have often planned for growth at a District level, what has been missing is the understanding of what this growth means for individual communities and neighbourhoods.
A ‘one size fits all’ approach is not the best way forward for our diverse District because each place is different. Communities have their own set of qualities, unique characteristics and people who make them special.
Engagement with the community has been an important part of the development of this plan and has informed the Placemaking Plan actions and key outcomes. Feedback closed at 5:00pm on 15 September 2021.
