Future Development Strategy FDS

The Future Development Strategy will show where growth is to be located, and in what form, and what infrastructure will be needed to support that growth.

What is the Future Development Strategy?

Tasman District Council and Nelson City Council are together working on the Nelson-Tasman Future Development Strategy, or the FDS.

The FDS will be a high-level plan to determine how the Nelson City and Tasman District will accommodate the next 30 years of housing and business growth. It will be prepared over a period of eight months. 

The FDS will show where growth is to be located, and in what form, and what infrastructure will be needed to support that growth.

Public feedback on high-level scenarios and ideas took place in early February 2019. 

Feedback round 2

We are now asking for your views on three different scenarios for how we grow over the next 30 years. Feedback closes 6 May.
