Help determine Katikati’s future growth areas
Help determine Katikati's future growth areas
Katikati is running out of land zoned for housing and more needs to be made available to meet demand.
Council's Resource Management Manager Philip Martelli says Katikati's population is projected to grow to as much as 6,810 people by 2043 and could grow further.
"To cater for this growth we need more space for new lots, which means we need to make zone changes now.
"We need to identify land which is feasible for development, rezone it to residential and service it so houses can be built when needed."
Council has carried out feasibility studies for a number of areas including:
- Busby Road and Henry Road
- Park Road (dairy farm)
- Beach Road and Pukakura Road (adjoining dairy farm)
- Other areas along Beach Road (including along the harbour edge)
- Tetley Rd
- State Highway 2 market garden.
"It's important that we think about and plan for the future of our settlements - which means development that provides a great quality of life for both current and future residents."
Council is seeking feedback on the various options to help decide where Katikati should expand.
Maps, information, and the ability to provide feedback will be online at haveyoursay.westernbay.govt.nz until Thursday 31 May.
