Legal Highs Policy

We cannot ban the sale of legal highs in our district. We can only restrict where these substances are sold.

Tell us where you think licensed retail outlets should be located in our district.

The draft Psychoactive Substances Policy proposes 2 alternative locations – permitting sales only in the Industrial Subdivision or on Gladstone Road.

Submissions close 5pm Monday 19 May. Make a submission online.

By-election for Gisborne ward

Due to the resignation of Councillor Manu Caddie a by-election is being held for Gisborne ward.

Candidate nominations are now open.

The by-election will be held on 3 July 2014 by postal vote.

Sports Parks Plan

We want to ensure that all sports codes have access to grounds to train and play. We recognise that people are playing a wider range of sports now and some of the codes such as ki-o-rahi, waka ama, and softball are growing in numbers but have little access to fit-for-purpose training and playing grounds.

We encourage all sporting organisations and sports park users to tell us what you think of the proposals in the draft plan.

Make a submission online. Submissions close 5pm Wednesday 18 June.
