Employment projections for the western Bay of Plenty

Tauranga City and the Western Bay of Plenty are experiencing strong growth and after the setbacks of the PSA and the Global Financial Crisis, the sub-region is facing growth pressures. To manage this growth, the Councils are updating the models they are using to inform investment spending decisions. Modelling traffic movements in, and around, the sub-region is an example of the evidence base used. An important input into traffic modelling is household and employment projections. The traffic model is currently being updated with a view to use it for projects such as the Tauranga Programme Business Case and related work.
