Help shape Omokoroa's future development between SH2 and the railway line

The feedback period for the Omokoroa Structure Plan has now ended. Thank you.

Have your say on what should go where. Pick from the four proposed options, or do your own.

Engagement ends at 4pm on Friday 12 October 2018.


The area between the railway line and State Highway 2 can accommodate 2,400 dwellings. Although it will take 30+ years to be fully developed, we need to ensure that adequate land is reserved for some of the key land uses that are vital to make Omokoroa a great place to live, learn, work and play.

When fully developed, Omokoroa will need around:

  • 3ha for an additional primary school
  • 7ha for a secondary school
  • 10ha for sports fields, and
  • 4ha for a retail, commercial and community hub.

As it is important these land uses be placed at the best locations, we need to set aside those locations before urban development occurs in the area.

Council, with the assistance of consultants, has developed four options, showing different locations and combinations for these land uses. Opportunities and limitations for each option are also outlined, and your feedback on the options would be appreciated.

You will notice that certain areas are identified for 'Medium Density Residential'. This means an average density of one dwelling per 250m2 (compared with around 500m2 for conventional residential). This density is what you would normally find in a retirement village, townhouse or unit title development (examples can be found beneath the 'Documents' panel on the right).

The retail, commercial and village centre will comprise of shops, offices, restaurants, cafes and community facilities, such as Council offices, library and multi-purpose meeting facilities. Once a preferred location has been selected for this centre, a more detailed plan will be developed. The detailed plan will be presented to the community within the first quarter of 2019.


Have your say

1. View the documents on the right - background information, the four proposed options, a document showing all 4 options on one page, a blank map should you wish to suggest anything different, FAQs, and image examples of Medium Density Residential.
