Hautapu Structure Plan review

​​​Submissions closed on 14​ June 2017 for the Hautapu Structure Plan review​.


By 2050 we’re expecting an additional 25,000 people in Waipa. We’re a growing district and with more and more people planning to call Waipa home we need to make sure our towns are ready for growth. 

Planning for growth includes providing areas for housing development, thinking about the need for shopping areas and recreation spaces and having industrial land available to help create local employment.

Hautapu is in great proximity to Cambridge and the expressway to be an industrial zoned area offering land for manufacturing and other large and small scale employment. 

We’ve been working on refreshing our 2008 Structure Plan for Hautapu to include changes that will support industrial development in Hautapu and attract more growth in the area.

A structure plan looks at where infrastructure (e.g. roads and pipes) will go and what other services will be provided.

Compared to the 2008 Hautapu Structure Plan, we’re now proposing to:

  • provide water, wastewater and stormwater to all properties in Hautapu. This includes a stormwater solution that allows staged development
  • introduce timing for land to change from rural zone to industrial zone
  • update the area layout to include the new connection to the Cambridge section of the Waikato Expressway.
