Industrial land growth.

Horowhenua is growing faster than expected and planning is underway for some of the largest infrastructure projects in our district’s history.

To meet the demands of growth, we’ll need 440 houses built every year! By 2038, more than 50,000 people will live in Horowhenua and Levin may well become a city.

Recently, Council has been engaging with partners, groups and individuals on many plans and strategies that together will help us accommodate growth while protecting and improving our environment and lifestyle.

In this section we've pulled together growth-related information from across Council into one place, to provide a greater understanding of what's happening in our district.
