Invest Bay of Plenty is a joint integrated spatial plan involving the region’s eight local authorities and the New Zealand Transport Agency.
To date, local and Central Government agencies have made plans using different population and employment trends data.
Through the project, the partners are developing a common set of population, labour force and economic projections, a clear picture of regional priorities and a shared approach to solving current and future problems. The plan will create efficiencies across local and central government organisations, identify priorities for funding and resources and promote economic growth in the region’s most productive and sustainable sectors.
By working to a common set of projections and goals, the collective skills, experience and influence of project partners and other business, government and community investors can be harnessed to create the best possible future for the whole of the Bay.
