What makes the Western Bay of Plenty so special? In a word - YOU!

We're beginning our journey in planning for the next decade ahead - what that looks like for the Western Bay and its residents.

In a nutshell - we want as many of you as possible to join us on this journey. After all - it's the place you call home.

This journey will take us into 2018. We hope to see you on the way...
