G21 Regional Growth Plan and Implementation Plan 2013

The Growth Plan’s framework for growth provides a planned response for a region of 500,000 people. It also provides capacity to grow beyond this where the provision of supporting infrastructure can be sustainably managed. It identifies new areas for growth that are likely to be required beyond identified planned growth and reinforces that growth is about providing new housing, employment, services and infrastructure. An efficient public transport system
and road network is critical for the region to cater for this growth.
