Be involved

It’s important we get the planning for Te Tumu right, together.

We want to work with landowners and our community to embrace the area’s unique history and build and protect the environment – while growing Te Tumu into Tauranga’s next coastal community.

The success of this project will require a good understanding of what outcomes we want to achieve for the community and landowners, and what the community and landowners want.

Throughout this 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 on this webpage.
