Subject: Future Development Strategy & Tauranga Urban Strategy  - Submission period open 5 October - 5 November 2018  

Councils in high growth areas like the western Bay of Plenty are required by Government to assess future housing and business needs and create a development strategy for the next 30 years. 

The Future Development Strategy (FDS), including the Tauranga Urban Strategy, is a document produced by SmartGrowth (a partnership of councils, tangata whenua, community groups and some government departments) to drive the discussion and decision-making needed to manage this expected growth. It identifies the big issues – things like housing, transport, employment, an aging demographic, cultural wellbeing, the environment – that we must collectively consider as our population increases over the next 30 years. Where and how will we house an extra 66,000 people in 43,000 more homes? What kind of transport systems and infrastructure do we need? What options are on the table right now? How will we pay for it all? This document sets goals but also aims to spark discussion and debate, feedback and great ideas and will be reviewed every three years.

The June Meeting was held in our new venue of Legacy Gardens. The seats were very comfortable, a good sound system and very informative presentation by Jordan Williams , Executive Director of The Taxpayers Union.

June 2018

The TCC was warned years ago that as we only had one road in and one road out access into and out of Papamoa East, it would be isolated due to an event like a tsunami, earthquake, flooding etc Not only were some of the new subdivisions flooded but also Papamoa Beach Road was awash on Sunday night which was a cause for concern to all Papamoa East residents particularly in the event of an emergency. Te Okuroa Drive might well be making progress but as a two lane road it will be inadequate and residents want action now on upgrading Papamoa Beach Road, four laning of Te Okuroa Drive and construction of the Papamoa East Interchange.

Museum Decision say no.

Its good to see commonsense has prevailed. Let’s sort the infrastructure out and keep rates rises to a minimum before we commit to projects we can ill afford.

The PRRA is looking forward to working with the new CEO of Tauranga City Council, hoping he will take a close look at Council spending, control rates rises and take an interest in the growth and infrastructural development for Papamoa, along with the upgrade of Papamoa Beach Road, which has been sadly lacking for years.

Kelvin Clout - Deputy Mayor, Tauranga City addressing another ‘standing room only’ meeting at the  meeting tonight. I think he’s the best Deputy Mayor we’ve had in the last four years.

 

 

 

 

 

Thank you to those who attended tonight’s PRRA meeting which proved to be informative as well as generating good debate with Councillors Clout, Morris and Robson. Our thanks to them for addressing community concerns and John Cruikshank from Kleana Bins for addressing the issues arising from the Councils proposed changes to rubbish collection.


In future though, if members wish to raise any matters with Councillors, could they first email Wayne to wayne@waynegeorge.co.nz so that they can be briefed beforehand. We would prefer to be more focussed on matters at hand during meeting time.
