A Structure plan is a guiding framework for the development or redevelopment of an area that will help define the future development and land use patterns, areas of open space, the layout and nature of infrastructure (including transportation links), constraints and key features that influence the effects of development are also considered and managed.

Ngaaruawaahia, Hopuhopu and, Taupiri should not be seen in isolation from each other; they all play a substantial part in the fabric of schooling, community services, business and retail.  The area that is being considered as part of the structure plan is shown on the map below.

Waikato District Council have commenced work on the Ngaaruawaahia, Hopuhopu and Taupiri Structure Plan & Ngaaruawaahia Town Centre Plan and have held a series of drop-in sessions earlier this year to allow residents to share their vision and concerns with the team.

This was an opportunity to shape and build your communities as well as build on the questionnaire findings that was completed at the end of 2022.

Now that we have had time to process and analysis your aspirations, we have created some possible project ideas that could be seen in your community, but we are needing your help to rank what projects are a priority for your community!
