Property Council's submission on the Bay of Plenty SmartGrowth Future Development Strategy and the Tauranga Urban Strategy

Property Council supports the FDS and TUS’ vision for a higher density city with good amenity and that growth and investment happen in a planned and predictable way.

Overall we think the FDS and TUS are a good start, however, we feel that Bay of Plenty’s Smartgrowth and Tauranga City Council need to do better than they are currently. In our submission on their future development strategies, we recommended they prioritise more areas for intensification of housing and transport.
