Investment in stormwater infrastructure in Eastside
In 2020 the Government’s Crown Infrastructure Partners granted Council $15 million to invest in stormwater infrastructure in Eastside to support housing development.
Council has developed and is implementing a Stormwater Master Plan to ensure that it is making cost effective investment decisions, and to ensure that infrastructure is installed at the right location, at the right size and at the right time, and is addressing both community and environmental wellbeing.
The initial locations identified through the Stormwater Masterplan are the western and eastern parts of Rotorua. This is where most of the housing development is expected to occur in the next few years.
