Productivity Plan

In December 2018 Council signed off on the Productivity Plan, which outlines how we can partner with central and regional government agencies, local councils, industry, iwi (to facilitate Māori economic development) and the community to catalyse a positive change that stretches outside our normal remit as a Council.

The Plan is focused on high value opportunities, with five targeted work streams:

  • Land use
  • Land productivity
  • Connected journeys – roading, data connectivity, water and air transport.
  • Aquaculture
  • Destination management and tourism

The Productivity Plan aims to achieve these objectives through:

  • Improved land use productivity that supports better employment opportunities and corporate investment.
  • Improved spatial planning for the district to support targeted economic growth.
  • Improved roading, blue highway and skyway access to and connectivity around the district.
  • Expansion of aquaculture farming and supporting industries.
  • Improved offering and coordination of the district as a food destination.
