Long Term Plan 2021-2031

Tell us what you want for our Tairāwhiti. We talked to our community in September–October 2020, at the tail end of a partial lockdown and towards the end of a year of extremes. We had floods and job losses from a drop in wood prices, and we had a pandemic lockdown. We had a stream of Government relief to get some of our major projects under way - such as road upgrades and the Olympic Pool .

We did as much kanohi ki te kanohi (face-to-face) consulting as we could, but a lot of our discussions had to be done online.

Now we want your views again on our options. Tell us what you think about our options, our plans and how we pay for it

Come and see us at an event near you

We’ll be out and about in the community, come and talk to councillors and staff.
