Heretaunga Plains

Planning Started: 2009
Construction Started: n/a
Completed: August 2010

Following an extensive public consultation process, the Napier City Council, Hastings District Council and Hawke’s Bay Regional Council adopted the Heretaunga Plains Urban Development Strategy (HPUDS) in mid-2010.

The HPUDS provides a framework for future urban growth on the Heretaunga Plains. Council officers are continuing to work through a range of actions encompassed within the strategy’s implementation plan.

The three participating councils are represented on a working group established in mid-2011 to oversee the strategy’s implementation stage. Napier Mayor Barbara Arnott chairs this working group, which also includes Napier councillors Rob Lutter and Tony Jeffery and the city’s planning manager Alastair Thompson.

The working party meets every two months or as required, with representatives reporting back to their respective councils.

Hastings and Napier have independent urban development strategies in place to guide their own development needs through to 2015-21. The HPUDS picks up from 2015 and projects those needs for the next 30 years and beyond.

The HPUDS is aimed at ensuring local authorities work together to plan growth on the Heretaunga Plains while recognising the value of soil as a resource for production. One goal is to quantify the level of growth over the next 30-plus years. Another is to provide policies that will guide growth through district plans, LTCCPs, the Regional Land Transport Strategy and infrastructure development planning.

The study’s boundaries consider transport networks and issues. In addition to the Heretaunga Plains, they encompass small rural settlements on the fringes such as Maraekakaho, Puketapu and Paki Paki and the coastal settlements of Waimarama, Ocean Beach, Te Awanga, Haumoana and Waipataki.
