The location of the Rangiuru Business Park is unbeatable, whether you’re an exporter, an importer or just keen to do business in the fastest growing region in New Zealand. It sits at the junction of the western, eastern and southern Bay of Plenty, just six minutes to Te Puke, 17 minutes to Port of Tauranga and within 2.5 hours’ drive of half of New Zealand’s population.

The Rangiuru Business Park is designed to allow for the construction of large footprint, high quality industrial facilities underpinned by reasonable land prices. The park will be connected to the bisecting Tauranga Eastern Link expressway by a dedicated interchange, providing great branding and site exposure for the park’s businesses and making travel times more predictable. The park is geographically well located to support the region’s key economic asset of Port of Tauranga, with a direct rail link.

The central position of the Rangiuru Business Park in the rapidly growing Bay of Plenty provides good access to skilled and unskilled employees and the park has potential for onsite child care facilities. The surrounding communities also offer a wide range of schooling options, affordable housing and all the facilities required to support the growth of your business.

What activities are permitted?

The Rangiuru Business Park is a key strategic asset that is ready to be populated. It is significant in its potential to unlock major private sector investment in industrial businesses, with a target of around 35 hectares to be delivered in the first stage of the development.

The park is zoned industrial and resource consents for earthworks and stormwater discharge are in place.

Permitted activities include industry, storage and warehousing (including activities supporting the kiwifruit industry), retail and wholesale trade, building and construction, commercial services, food processing operations, wood processing, medical or scientific facilities, industrial manufacturing, green waste and recycling, aquaculture, childcare facilities and veterinary services.

When is development happening?

Detailed engineering design of key elements is currently underway with delivery expected for the commencement of earthworks and construction in the summer of 2020-21, depending on funding and demand. 

Land may be available for early adopters by the end of 2022 subject to planning and approval.

How is the development being staged?

The first stage of the Rangiuru Business Park is around 35 hectares of land and will take place in the lower portion of the green area marked ‘Quayside land’ on the map below.

The location, shape and total area may be customised by negotiation with early adopters, subject to planning approval.

Under the Western Bay of Plenty District Plan, at least 50% of Stage 1 needs to be complete before other stages can be started.

With a supply of thermal and electrical energy, natural gas, high speed broadband and telecom services available at the gate, developing, building or leasing at Rangiuru Business Park is made easy.
