Te Tumu presents an opportunity to develop a new community.
working with landowners to create a new coastal community in Papamoa East, to
help support our city’s future growth.
Te Tumu is a place of great historic and cultural wealth, both for Tangata Whenua and European settlers, who have lived and worked on the land since the 1800s. Bounded by the Pacific Ocean to the north, the Kaituna River and farmlands to the south, Te Tumu is well-positioned to connect the city to these resources.
Tauranga City Council is working closely with landowners, iwi and hapu to collaboratively decide what the future of Te Tumu might look like. You can find out more about this project, what the next steps are and how to have your say, on the pages below.
