LTP 2023-24

Mahere Raeroa 2024-34

Long-term Plan 2024-34

Investing in our future, making things fairer, doing the mahi.  

Our plan hasn’t changed much since we last talked with you. You’ve told us what’s important and we’re listening. We’re committed to finishing what we’ve started; to doing the mahi and delivering on the priority projects that will address the city’s key issues and prevent Tauranga slipping further behind.

We know it’s a hard time to talk about investing in our city. That’s why we’re working hard to keep our costs and rates increases as low as possible by delaying or deferring some projects.

We’re also doing our best to make sure everyone is paying a fair share to help reduce the burden on general ratepayers.

It’s a balancing act between the investment our city needs today and in the future, and what we can afford in the face of increasing delivery costs. We think we have that balance right, now we want to know what you think.

Consultation has now closed.
