Waikato 2070

Growth and Economic Development Strategy

The purpose of the Waikato District Council Development Strategy is to guide the growth in the district over the next 50 years by informing future planning, investment and decision making.

The strategy takes a broad and inclusive approach to growth which takes into account its economic social, environmental, cultural and physical dimensions which are organised into Four Focus Areas.

The Waikato 2070 strategy is unique as it takes an integrated approach to future growth in the Waikato District. It combines economic and community development focus areas with future land use and infrastructure planning and growth patterns.

This document will inform communities, businesses, investors, iwi, governments and neighboring local authorities and the Council itself, to help deliver and achieve the communities’ vision.
