Tauranga City Council is calling for the community's feedback on plans to accommodate growth in Tauranga central throughout the Te Papa peninsula.

The council is asking people to take a short survey and come along to one of the public information sessions, set to take place in August and September, about the Te Papa project.

In a written statement, the council said it was seeking public feedback to help shape the future of the area from Barkes Corner to the city centre.

"The Te Papa project is about planning for the future of this area in terms of housing, parks, public places and transport as well as the investment that will be needed to support healthy growth,"

"This strategy will inform changes to the City Plan, encourage public investment in amenities, infrastructure and initiatives through the Long-term Plan and encourage private investment and development in the area."
