Planning Ahead

Planning ahead is an important part of our role as a council. We work with communities to anticipate future growth and provide for tomorrow's needs.


Arataki is approximately 80ha in size and will accommodate in the range of 750 lots. Arataki is being developed in two stages. In stage 1, 460 sections have been subdivided with 425 building consents issued.

Within stage 2, there is potential for approximately 290 lots which will provide for between 5-10 years of residential growth. Currently services and roads are being designed and built for stage 2.

Below is the indicative development plan for Arataki Stage 2. (Click to enlarge)
