Vision 2030

Vision 2030 - The Rotorua Way, establishes a way forward for the Rotorua district and drives everything council does, working with the community to achieve a positive future.

The Rotorua Way focuses on what makes Rotorua special – the district's active environment, the strong Te Arawa culture and manaakitanga, the fantastic lifestyle and the diverse economic opportunities that exist here. Together, these make Rotorua a unique place in which to live, work, invest and to visit.

Together we can - and do - make a difference. Tatau Tatau - We together. 

Vision 2030 – The Rotorua Way

This is our home, we are its people. 
We're the heart of Te Arawa and a centre for Māori culture and expression.
We're innovative and we share what we learn.
We're driving opportunity, enterprise and diversity.
We're supporting a legacy of sustainability for our environment.
Rotorua is a place for everyone...

Tatau tatau - We together.

Koinei tō tātau kāinga. Ko tātau ōna tāngata.
Nā tātau tonu i ora ai te ahurea
Māori me ōna āhuatanga katoa.
He iwi auaha tātau e tuku nei i tā tātau e ako nei.
E kokiri nei tātau i te angitu, i te hihiri me ngā rerekētanga maha.
E kaha tautoko nei tā tau i whakapūmautanga o te taiao.
Mō te katoa a Rotorua…Tatau tata u

  • Growing our partnership with Te Arawa.
  • Working innovatively, outside traditional delivery mechanisms, to drive more cost-effective and more efficient services.
  • Ensuring all our work programmes align with the district's ambitions.
  • Shaping our council to be more effective and responsive.

Contribution to Vision 2030 will be achieved through the delivery of key projects. These are driven by opportunities arising from Rotorua's strengths. In support, the council organisation will ensure continued progress by committing to ongoing reviews of how it works in an effective and responsive way – organisational commitments.

Integrated planning approach

The Rotorua Way provides the direction for the next few years, guiding our long-term, annual and spatial plans and decision-making around key projects and initiatives. These future-focussed plans, key projects and initiatives are how we will deliver Vision 2030.
