Growth Model

This page presents key outputs from the 2015 Tasman District Growth Model review.

Growth modelling is an important component of our long term planning. It helps us to determine what infrastructure and community facilities are required to service our growing population. 

Settlement Area Reports

Once every three years we prepare Settlement Area Reports, which summarise key outcomes of the latest Growth Model review.
