Verse of The Day
“I a koutou mahi katoa kaua te amuamu, te tautohetohe; Kia kore ai koutou e whaikupuria, kia tapatahi ai, he tamariki kohakore na te Atua, i waenganui o te whakatupuranga tutu, parori ke, kei roto nei koutou i a ratou e tiaho ana hei rama i te ao; Kia mau pu ki te kupu o te ora; kia hari ai ahau a te ra o te Karaiti, kihai ahau i oma noa, kihai i mahi noa.” (Philippians 2:14-16)

Whangarei District Council Growth Strategy

The Whangarei District has experienced significant growth over the period 2001 to 2008. Although growth is slowing in line with global and national trends, future growth for the district is projected to continue and in some parts of the district, particularly in the Marsden Point/Ruakaka area, has the potential to be substantial. This growth presents both challenges and opportunities to our communities, businesses and governing bodies - and to us as individuals and families.

To manage the projected growth sustainably, the Whangarei District Council has committed to formulating a long term Sub-regional Growth Strategy. This project, entitled Sustainable Futures 30/50, will identify economic drivers of development, assess future growth potential, determine existing and potential land use patterns, and assess and plan for infrastructural requirements for the district over a 30-50 year time frame.

...economic growth must not be at the expense of the natural environment...

Environmental, social and cultural constraints on, and consequences of, anticipated development will be identified and assessed. This research and analysis will enable a long term, integrated, strategic planning programme to be developed, based upon sustainability principles, which will assist the sustainable development of the district over the next 50 years. The WDC Sub-regional Growth Strategy will align with, and support, a Northland wide regional growth strategy being developed concurrently by the Northland Regional Council.
