We want to work together with our communities, to embrace the area’s history and build and protect the environment, while creating the region’s newest community – the Tauriko for Tomorrow.
It is important that we get the planning right, together. The success of this project will require a good understanding of what outcomes we want to achieve for the community, and what the community wants.
Throughout the process we will be going out to the community and stakeholders to provide information and gather ideas and feedback. This will include open days and workshops, surveys and regular updates via email and on the project website
