Welcome to another year.
It is going to be a busy one throughout the District, highlighted by the
public consultation and then implementation of our Long Term Plan. We will be asking for your feedback on a number
of issues within the plan.
Most notably around the proposed Waimakariri indoor sports
facility, our Waste Minimisation proposals, District Regeneration, Community
Facilities and Water Management.
The first council meetings of the New Year, where Long Term
Plan proposals will be discussed, take place between 30 January and 2 February.
The decisions stemming from those budget meetings will then
go out to you for your feedback during an LTP public consultation through March
and early April.
Kicking off on Friday 9 March and running through until
Monday 9 April, the consultation period will give you the chance to have your
say on some of the issues that will define the immediate and longer term,
future of the District.
We will be doing plenty to keep you informed in the lead-up
to, and during, the consultation period.
Make sure that you make the time to have your say!
