Whangarei's population shot up from 68,000 in 2001 to 79,000 last year, with about 60 per cent of growth occurring in rural and coastal areas.

Whangarei District Council has adopted a Growth Strategy designed to shape the development of the district over the next 30 to 50 years.

It has been described as "one of the most important documents council has ever produced".

It is expected there will be another 50,000 people in the district in 50 years.

A draft growth strategy that could make Marsden Pt/Ruakaka a satellite town that complements rather than competes with Whangarei, will be prepared.

Councillors approved the 30/50 Sustainable Future Growth Strategy - a comprehensive document put together after a series of workshops around the district.
