It offers propositions for achieving both in a holistic approach to city planning along with a number of growth themes for the city to consider and comment on.

Consultation closes on 17th November 2008. The Growth Strategy will then be finalised, adopted and used to inform Council’s Long Term Plan 2009-19 and form the basis of a comprehensive review to Hamilton’s District Plan.
