Tauriko West, on the edge of Tauranga City, is the next proposed urban development to support our region’s growth, delivering an estimated 3000 new dwellings from 2022 or 2023.
Tauranga and the western Bay of Plenty continue to experience strong population growth and as a result, more land is needed for housing. We have identified Tauriko West as an ideal location to set up a new community and provide more residential housing to cater for this growth.
The Tauriko for Tomorrow project is a collaboration between SmartGrowth partners Western Bay of Plenty District Council, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Tauranga City Council, and the NZ Transport Agency. Together we are implementing the vision of SmartGrowth for the wider region, starting in Tauriko West.
