LIVE, LEARN, WORK and PLAY
"Western Bay - a great place to live, learn, work and play"
The SmartGrowth Strategy forms an implementation plan focused on six key outcomes:
Taking into account a range of environmental, social, economic and cultural matters, the strategy identifies opportunities for building our community.
Ensuring a balanced approach to growth management is an important part of planning for the future and connecting the spaces and places that create communities - not just now, but in the future.
The Strategy is focused on implementation and future thinking. It has a 50-year horizon with particular focus on the next 20 years.
The underlying success of SmartGrowth has been the strength of collaboration and shared vision between the strategy partners: Tauranga City Council, Western Bay of Plenty District Council, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, tangata whenua, partner community/business organisations and key Governmental agencies - like the New Zealand Transport Agency.
