We’ve partnered together so that we can achieve better shared outcomes for our region…

Our region faces many cross-boundary growth-related challenges. By joining forces, we can solve our regional challenges, maximise our potential, improve existing communities and develop new communities to be places where we all want to live and work.

The Committee is responsible for three key areas: regional growth, regional economic development and regional economic recovery.

We’re looking at things from a systems-level: covering all interrelated aspects that underpin how we live and work. These include housing, infrastructure, transport, iwi/Māori housing, climate change, resilience and economic development. We’re focusing on better coordination and alignment across our region, to build a better future, together.
