2022 Super Consultation

A range of questions about the future of Tararua District

In 2022, your council has more decisions to make than ever. With at least 7 key issues up for discussion, council in holding a “Super Consultation” over 2 rounds. “Consultations” are the process that councils use to gather information or advice from their communities.

Whether it’s how we manage our water, the impacts of climate change, managing our growth or what the future of Tararua looks like... It’s important that we take time now to understand how these changes will impact our people, our places, our spaces and our plans as we move forward.

We’re asking some big questions this year across 2 rounds of public consultation. This is your chance to help shape the future of the Tararua District, so watch out for the consultation launch on Tuesday, 1 February!

Round 1 Topics (round 2 to be announced):
District Strategy: What is your vision for Tararua in 2050? Let us know your big ideas for the future!
Pre-consultation on the Water Supply Bylaw: We’re reviewing our local bylaw and need your feedback.
Water Tanks: Should we provide access to affordable water storage that can be paid off alongside regular rates instalments?
Play, Active Recreation and Sport Strategy: We’re in the early stages of developing a strategy that will guide the planning of future projects and programmes and we need your input.

Let’s talk about it face-to-face…
Sometimes it’s just better to talk about these things in person - so, we’re hosting expos across the district. The expos will have “stalls” for each topic with all the information available to take away.
