  1. Years are split as they represent financial years (e.g. July 2015 – June 2018 for years 1-3)
  2. Years 1-10 represent life of LTP
  3. Years 1-20 accord with life of AMP

The above population data for Collingwood has been adjusted from the census data to reflect the realistic permanent population, given that there is a higher proportion of part-time and visitor population here, than in the Tasman District as a whole.

Average household size is projected to decrease from 2.3 to 2.0 over the next 25 year period. The median age is increasing, though this may be tempered in Golden Bay generally when the development of the aquaculture industry occurs over time.

Collingwood has a lower occupancy rate than the household size because of the large number of holiday homes. Thus the dwelling supply is higher than one would expect in relation to projected new household formation rates.

More than sufficient land (equivalent to 103 lots) is available in the existing main residential area and adjacent area to meet the projected demand for 32 dwellings over the next 25 years.
