Provide housing bottom lines for the short-medium term and long term in Tauranga as set out in the table
Table 2A.1: Housing bottom lines:
||Short-medium term 2020-
||30 Year Total
*The housing bottom lines include a competitiveness margin of 20% for the short and medium terms
and 15% for the long term.
The National Policy Statement on Urban Development 2020 (NPS-UD) requires short-medium term
and long term housing bottom lines to be set for tier 1 and 2 urban environments, including Tauranga
Housing bottom lines are the amount of feasible, reasonably expected to be realised development
capacity (ie. new dwellings) that must be enabled to meet demand, along with a competitiveness
margin for the short and medium terms. The short-medium term means the next 10 years, and the
long terms means between 10 and 30 years.
The housing bottom lines represent the development capacity that Tauranga City Council shall
enable through the City Plan, structure plans, Infrastructure Strategies and strategic growth strategies.
