Tauranga city officials are trying to establish if any high-rise buildings have the same building panels as London's Grenfell Tower.
Leader Gould said the Taplow building would be "temporarily decanted".
The council had already announced that it would immediately begin preparing to remove cladding from the five towers on the estate discovered in checks following the fire in north Kensington.
She said it is thought the work would take three to four weeks, adding: "We realise that this is hugely distressing for everyone affected and we will be doing all we can, alongside the London Fire Brigade and other authorities, to support our residents at this hard time".
"The Grenfell fire changes everything - we need to do everything we can to keep residents safe".

English authorities determined that a Whirlpool refrigerator with the brand name Hotpoint ignited the fire in the Grenfell Tower that resulted in the deaths or presumed deaths of at least 79 people.

Fiona McCormack says authorities are "looking at every health and safety and fire safety offense and we are reviewing every company at the moment involved in the building and refurbishment of Grenfell Tower". "Where do they think we're all going?" The call comes after London Mayor Sadiq Khan's pledge to seek an amnesty for people who may have been living in the tower illegally.
Eleven buildings have now been identified as having combustible cladding such as that used on the Grenfell Tower.
The cheap cladding was blamed for the fire spreading from one fourth floor flat and engulfing the entire building in the early hours of June 14. Along with Manchester, only Camden and Plymouth have been identified among this list.
