Here to Where?

We’re developing the 2018-2028 Long Term Plan of work, spending and funding, policies and plans for the next ten years – thank you so much for your help.

Since the beginning of June we have received around 300 comments on a range of topics – taking care of our infrastructure – rubbish, recycling, water and sewerage, improving our roads, safety, improving recreational facilities particularly for our young people, and more cycleways and walkways.

All of this information is being presented to Council and will be used to help shape the plan. After that you’ll get another chance to provide us with your feedback through a formal consultation process in March next year.

Read all about it 

We’re here now

We have a pretty good idea of where we are right now and what is happening in our District. Every year we gather tonnes of information from all sorts of sources – from you, government, Statistics New Zealand, economic reports, research, the media, community groups, pressure groups – you name it, if someone has information and we can use it, we do.

We boil these down and work them up into imaginative strategies, plans and policies that guide our work, so we can deliver the outcomes we all want for our district. Have a look through them!

Check out how far we’ve come 

We’ve come this far

Over the past 10-20 years a huge amount of progress has been made in our District.

From major projects to help make the harbour cleaner to bringing in kerbside recycling, from walkways in our most scenic spots to huge events like the British & Irish Lions – our District has seen a lot of development and improvements. Here is a very short list of some of those things. We are asking you what you’d like to see on a list like this in another 10 years.

We’re making a new plan

To keep on top of new needs and developments, directions and knowledge and to make sure we know what is coming up, we review our 10-year-plan (Long Term Plan) every three years.

That means that much of the work due to happen in the next year or three has often been on the books for about 10 years, steadily getting closer all the time. It might be new infrastructure to accommodate population growth, or changes to the way we administer things. The projects outlined here are those that are currently in years 4-10 of our 2015-2025 Long Term Plan. It’s now time to review this and see if it’s on track and consider what may have changed since that plan was finalised in 2015.
