Horowhenua 2040 Blueprint

The Horowhenua 2040 Blueprint (Blueprint), adopted by Council on 11 May 2022, details 12 action areas Council is committed to improving, with liveability and prosperity at the heart of the work being prioritised.

The actions are wide-ranging and include enabling more affordable housing choices, supporting and enabling iwi aspirations, securing jobs in key sectors, attracting more visitors with a strong district identity, nurturing and promoting a food culture and keeping the district moving.

The Blueprint serves to give effect to the values and aspirations articulated in the Horowhenua 2040 Strategy (H2040) and the suite of supporting Horowhenua District Council strategies, and is essentially the implementation strategy for H2040 and the supporting strategies.

  • align with Council plans and policies.
  • support a coordinated approach to growth and infrastructure provision.
  • have a strong economic and employment logic.
  • address housing affordability.
  • recognise Iwi values and aspirations. 

The Horowhenua 2040 Blueprint is closely linked to our Horowhenua 2040 Strategy. The strategy can be viewed on our Horowhenua 2040 Strategy page.
