Kia ora, welcome.

We are working together to create great communities and a safe transport network in the Western Bay of Plenty to cater for Tauranga’s and the sub-region’s strong population growth.

Tauriko West, on the edge of Tauranga, is one of the large-scale urban developments proposed to support this growth, delivering a new community with an estimated 3000 – 4000 new homes from 2024/25.

Tauriko for Tomorrow is a collaborative project driven by four key partners, Western Bay of Plenty District Council, Bay of Plenty Regional Council, Tauranga City Council and Waka Kotahi – NZ Transport Agency.

With a long-term plan that looks at how best to develop the new community, improve transport links and safety for all users, increase opportunities for public transport and active transport, and open up the area for urban development, we are implementing the vision of SmartGrowth for the wider region, starting in Tauriko West.


We are seeking peoples’ views on the next phase of the Tauriko for Tomorrow project to shape a safe transport network and create great communities in Tauriko West.
