Tuakau local area blueprint


Population: 4,639 (2016 estimate) with growth projected to reach 10,147 by 2045

We first came to Tuakau in August 2018 and heard what was important to you. You told us what you wanted to see in your community in the future. We heard lots of great ideas and a number of these initiatives can be found below. We then came back to you in 2019 to hear what your top three priorities are for Tuakau.

We visited again in June/July 2020 to discuss who should lead each of these initiatives for Tuakau. This latest round of feedback asked for your thoughts on the priority ranking and who should be leading each initiative. Is the priority still top, or is something else more important. Should Council or the community, or perhaps a mix of both, be leading the initiative? Feedback closed on 17 July.

The top priority initiatives for Tuakau include:

  • Support the local initiative to establish a community hub
  • Develop a sports and recreation facility, possibly incorporating the Council’s pool
  • Build public toilets
  • Support and enhance library services
  • Moved to district-wide, but still top: build a strong identity, consider areas for expansion, reconciling possible growth demand with high class soils and contours
