Heretaunga Plains Urban Development Strategy


2017 HPUDS Overview Map

2017 HPUDS Maps

The Growth Areas

The settlement pattern is made up of key growth areas that have been identified within Napier City and Hastings District. The settlement pattern to 2045 will involve an increase in the number of households within a smaller land area, by focusing development into the growth areas.

Based on HPUDS2017, the key elements of the distribution of residential dwellings over the entire 2015-2045 period are now:

• 47% intensification (10 – 20% intensification or brownfields)
• 45% greenfield
• 8% of population in rural residential areas

One of the aims of the Heretaunga Plains Urban Development Strategy is to have defined urban areas. This allows for more cost effective and efficient servicing and creates definite boundaries between the urban and rural environments.

To complement infill developments and re-use of older sites, the following are the proposed growth areas for the Heretaunga Plains beyond 2015.  Also see maps below.  The extents of these areas is indicative only.
