Rangiora High School Gets Engaged About Council’s LTP

Published: 28-May-2018

Around 50 senior students turned out at an engagement event at the Rangiora High School this afternoon, as Council set up shop in the common space to talk about proposals in the Draft Long Term Plan (LTP).

Students filling in online submissionMayor David Ayers and Chief Executive Jim Palmer headed the event, and were encouraged with the insights the students had about what they wanted to see in the future of their District. “We’re out and about in the community talking about the topics within the Draft Plan, and the opportunity to discuss these with the students was invaluable. The Multi-Use Sports Facility was certainly well received.”

As well as the key topics within the Draft Plan, Jim Palmer also asked the students what they would like to see in the District in the future. These range from improved small bore rifle range facilities to hydroslides.

“We really enjoyed hearing the views from the students. We know young people will be greatly affected by the decisions we make in this LTP” says Jim.

As part of extensive community engagement, the Council are at supermarkets, markets, community group meetings and shows.  “It’s really important as a Council that we hear from everyone.”
