Your council

Bay of Plenty Regional Council's work guides and supports the sustainable development of the Bay of Plenty. We want to make sure our region grows and develops in a way that keeps its values safe for future generations.

A major focus of our work involves looking after the environment. We manage the effects of people's use of freshwater, land, air and coastal water. However, we also have a broader responsibility with others for the economic, social and cultural well-being of the regional community.

E ngā manukura, e ngā tātarariki
O te rohe whānui
Tēnā koutou katoa

Mai i Ngā Kurī a Whārei ki Tihirau
Mai i Maketū ki tai mai o Taupō-nui-a-Tia
Ko te rohe kaunihera tēnei o Toi Moana
Kia toi te whenua, kia toi te moana, kia toi te taiao,
kia toi te tāngata

Greetings to all
