New Plymouth District Blueprint

After extensive community engagement during the last Long-term Plan, an exciting 30-year vision was painted called the New Plymouth District Blueprint. To deliver on this vision eight key directions have been developed that support a 30-year blueprint for the District.

The New Plymouth District Blueprint is a high level spatial plan for the district that supports and implements the Shaping our Future Together vision and outcomes and will help guide Council decision-making to deliver more integrated social, economic and environmental outcomes for the community.

We are working to deliver the key directions into our long term planning with the current focus on the District Plan Review.

What's happening

On 9 June 2015 the Council approved the eight Blueprint key directions as part of the Long-Term Plan deliberations. You can read the report to Council which gives the background and reasoning behind the key directions.

Next steps: We are developing a Blueprint Implementation Framework which will include actions for delivery. This will be integrated into the Council's District Plan review, long term planning, and ultimately how it delivers services to the community. The development of the Blueprint Implementation Framework will require involvement from internal staff and key stakeholders.

Blueprint key directions

The Blueprint is supported by eight key directions that will be the Council’s focus for planning during the next 30 years. The directions are summarised below and provide a clear signal to other agencies, businesses, industries and the community on how the Council will focus its resources and deliver on the community outcomes.
