Waikato District Council Growth & Economic Development Strategy

Waikato District Council has set the direction for future growth in the district with the adoption of the Growth & Economic Development Strategy.

Titled Waikato 2070, the purpose of the strategy is to guide the growth and development in the district over the next 50 years.

Waikato 2070 is unique because it takes a joined-up approach to future growth and investment in the Waikato district. It combines economic and community development with future land use and infrastructure planning.

It informs our rural and urban communities, businesses, investors, iwi, Government, neighbouring local authorities and Council itself on where growth in the district will be in the years ahead. While enabling growth, Waikato 2070 also aims to protect things like high class soils.
