District vision and mission
Our District's 20-Year Vision reflects the wishes of the people living in the Western Bay of Plenty.
The key elements of the District Vision are:
- we can all enjoy a healthy and safe lifestyle
- our communities are vibrant and welcoming
- leaders are effective, informed and inclusive
- our environment is clean, green and valued
- our economy is thriving
The elected members of the Western Bay (councillors) play an important part in achieving this vision.
This is how the councillors see their role:
Council will be recognised as a leader providing strong governance and efficient, effective services through understanding the identity of our communities.
How the Council organisation works to support the District and Council vision is achieved through the organisational mission:
Provide people with best value service by implementing plans that deliver social, cultural, environmental and economic progress across the Western Bay of Plenty District.
The 'People Plan Progress' elements of the organisational mission are represented on communication material and throughout this site.
