Pāpāmoa reserves upgrades

Pāpāmoa reserves upgrades

We live in a wonderful part of New Zealand and in Pāpāmoa there are many great parks and reserves enjoyed by the community.

Pāpāmoa Ward

This ward is home to over 21,000 people and includes includes Pāpāmoa, Golden Sands, Wairakei and Te Tumu. 

This coastal strip area has experienced fast population growth, which is expected to continue.  In the next 10 years an estimated 2,000-3,000 new homes will be built in the areas already zoned for housing with an additional 7,000-8,000 homes once Te Tumu is zoned for housing. Improved transportation links to the City as well as the construction of a direct link to the Tauranga Eastern Link via the Pāpāmoa East Interchange are important to residents.

Due to its coastal location, this area also faces increased tsunami risk, sea level rise and coastal hazards.

Visit Pāpāmoa

There’s so much to see and do in our slice of coastal paradise. Use the links below to find out more:.
