Sustainable Living Strategy
The Rotorua Sustainable Living Strategy – Toitū te oranga o Rotorua has been developed within the Portfolio. This work was led by the portfolio steering group, with input from a wide variety of groups and individuals in the community to provide a community view – He hāpori rautaki, he korero a te iwi.
The draft strategy (see below) covers a wide range of sustainable living issues including housing, waste management, the environment and community resilience, health and wellbeing. There are six key objectives with supporting strategies and actions.
