Draft SmartGrowth Strategy 2013
SmartGrowth was initiated as a cohesive sub-regional plan for managing the growth of the western Bay over the next 50 years. SmartGrowth 2013 has evolved into the spatial plan for the western Bay of Plenty. SmartGrowth provides a unified vision, direction and voice for the future of the western Bay through leadership and collaboration.
The Draft SmartGrowth Strategy was approved for the purposes of public consultation by each of the SmartGrowth Partner Councils on Friday 26 April.
