Heart of the City

Heart of the City Banner

Great cities have vibrant city centres. The purpose of the Heart of the City Programme is to work in partnership to create vibrant, safe and successful city centre.

We want more people to live, work, learn and play in our city centre. This is in line with the City Centre Strategy, which seeks to establish the Tauranga city centre as the commercial, civic and cultural heart of the sub region.

Council-led projects including the new civic administration building and surrounding open space, business cases for museum, city library and performance venue, future investment in the waterfront and streetscape, and living in the city centre all come under the umbrella of the Heart of the City Programme.

The Heart of the City Programme aligns with Council’s community outcomes: a talented and innovative city full of opportunity; a city with heart and soul; a city of great spaces, places and environments.
