Tauranga is growing quickly and the suburbs of Ōtūmoetai, Matua, Brookfield, Bellevue and Judea will see big changes over the next 30 years. Right now, we’re asking for your feedback to help us create a plan for the future of this special part of the city.
Our city is projected to grow by around 78,500 residents by 2063 and will need approximately 34,400 new homes to be built.
Growth will occur across our city, but particularly in the Ōtūmoetai Peninsula because its central location, proximity to the water, green spaces, and other commercial/retail centres makes it a great place to live.
Central Government has given us the job of enabling growth across Tauranga. This will include enabling more housing to be built at greater densities (number of homes per hectare) and heights within our existing urban areas such as the city centre, Te Papa Peninsula and the Ōtūmoetai Peninsula.
We’re looking ahead to make sure we have enough homes, suitable ways to get around and community spaces to support the wellbeing of everyone who lives here.

Thank you to everyone who provided feedback about what you’d like to see in future in this part of the city.
In June we’ll share with you a draft plan for the area, which will cover land use, movement, safety, amenities, retail centres as well as some key projects for each of the neighbourhoods. You’ll then have another opportunity to share your feedback.
