Housing/Growth

Growth in housing is a given. We need to manage this through both intensification (more houses on urban sections) as well as controlled expansion of our urban communities. But there must be a balance to protect neighbours and the environment that drew us to the Western Bays.
Growth comes with both funding (development levies and new ratepayers) as well as costs (infrastructure) so we must invest wisely, and not blow Council’s limited budget on vanity projects.
