Where did we come from?

The LTRA exists to act as the voice of Tarawera property owners in communications with external interested parties. Specifically Rotorua Lakes Council, Bay of Plenty Regional Council are ones who impose most influence on our community.

Where are we going?

The focus for the future is to build on key relationships in both councils to further the interests of our ratepayers. It's always easier the get things done if the base of the relationship is a solid one.

Increasingly there is a need to work with the traditional owners of the area. The landowners prior to the eruption of 1886, Tuhourangi and Ngati Rangitihi are very keen for us to align our goals and aspirations with theirs.

The health of our lake is paramount. Water quality is the beginning and end of everything the LTRA endeavours to do.
