Submission on: Future Development Strategy 2022-52 

Federated Farmers thanks the Tasman District Council (“TDC”) for the opportunity to submit on the Future Development Strategy 2022-52. We understand that this document will provide the blueprint for future urban development in the Nelson and Tasman region.

We understand that the Council is working to a medium growth scenario, in which an estimated 26k new homes will be required to 2052.

In our view, the FDS presents an opportunity to discuss at a high level, how much growth is appropriate and sustainable in the Tasman region. That discussion would seem to be the appropriate starting point before agreeing strategies to accommodate population growth.
