But before the Te Mahere Turoa - Long Term Plan is drafted, we'd like to hear what's most important to you.

Your environment, your community, your Bay, your way

What we do

Toi Moana Bay of Plenty Regional Council’s role involves looking after our environment, which includes our land air and water, and also public transport and sustainable development for the region.

The Long Term Plan

Every three years we work with our community to produce a Long Term Plan. The Long Term Plan sets our strategic direction for the next ten years, including the work we will deliver and how that work will be funded.

We are currently working on our 2024 – 2034 Long Term Plan and would like to hear your thoughts to help us shape what goes into our draft plan that will be formally consulted on with the community early next year.

Community challenges

Council is very aware of community affordability when it comes to the services it provides. Current economic challenges, including a cost of living crisis, combined with climate change events, such as cyclones, are having a significant impact on what council needs to deliver. We’re seeking your views on where we should focus our efforts as we draft the Long Term Plan that we’ll take to the community for input next year.
