An implementation plan is being developed that sets out the actions that will help us deliver Tairāwhiti 2050. Tairāwhiti 2050 will be implemented across different organisations and in different ways. Some examples are:
Partnerships. Working with others is an important tool in the implementation of Tairāwhiti 2050. This plan will help to identify where the community, iwi, government agencies, organisations and Council can work together to invest and develop. All of Tairāwhiti has a shared responsibility for implementation.
Council’s Long Term Planning. Tairāwhiti 2050 provides a strategic outlook that will support decision-making and investment through Council’s Long Term Planning process. The plan signals major changes on the planning horizon and catalyses timely conversations around how we respond to those changes. The plan also provides an indication of the kinds of services and infrastructure our growing communities may need in the future. The Long Term Plan is the opportunity for the community and Council to consider the costs and benefits of different options and their time frames for delivery.
Resource management planning. Tairāwhiti 2050 will inform the review of the Tairāwhiti Resource Management Plan (TRMP). The research and engagement undertaken as part of developing Tairawhiti 2050 will provide an evidence base for making changes to the TRMP and identify gaps where further research is needed. Importantly, Tairāwhiti 2050 will set the scene for improving our rules for sustainably managing the region’s natural and physical resources.
Other Council plans. Tairāwhiti 2050 will also inform future non-mandatory planning and policy processes. New plans and strategies, as well as plan reviews, will be aligned to the direction provided by this document.
