Consultation for the 2018-28 Long Term Plan

The Long Term Plan (LTP) outlines our priorities for the next ten years. The LTP also explains how work will be scheduled and what it will cost to meet our priorities over the ten years.

Our Consultation Document (CD) will present the proposals and its financial impact. Supporting Information, like the Infrastructure Strategy, will be available on our website, and in hardcopy format from our Queen Street Office.

How can you find out more?

The CD will be published as an insert in the Waitomo News.

Additional copies of the CD will be available from our Queen Street office, the Waitomo District Library and the following locations (from 5th April):

  • The Old Piopio Post Office Gallery, 45 Moa Street, Piopio.
  • Mokau Museum and Gallery, 33 North Street, Mokau.
  • Cafe Kai and Bar, 15 Waitomo Village Road, Waitomo.
  • Benneydale Foodmarket Ltd, 34 Ellis Road, Benneydale.
  • Marokopa Camping Ground, 1 Rauparaha Street, Marokopa.

You can also read the CD and Supporting Information online.

How can you shape our District?

We encourage residents and ratepayers to participate in the consultation for the 2018-28 LTP, to tell us your thoughts about the priorities for our District and what it will imply financially.  There are many ways you can provide feedback. Inside the CD is a submission form for you to complete and return via by post, hand delivery or email. You can complete an online submission on our website. 

Perhaps you would prefer to provide your feedback in person? Your local Councillors have meetings planned during April, should you wish to speak with them.
