Consultation and Community Engagement

Council regularly undertakes consultation on issues of concern to our communities of interest.  These can be as part of official consultations required under the Local Government Act (eg, Annual Plan, Long Term Plan, Bylaw and Policy Reviews, etc) or as part of a community or other project.

Those who have made submissions during an official consultation process are entitled to speak to Council on their submission, if they so desire.

  • Not more than two persons may address the meeting on a particular submission.
  • A limit of ten minutes is placed on a speaker making a submission or, if there are two members addressing the meeting, ten minutes in total for the two speakers.

Draft (Exceptions) Annual Plan 2017-2018

The consultation period on the exception proposals to the Annual Plan is now closed.

Hearings on submissions will take place in Taumarunui, Ohakune and Raetihi. For details please see here, The public are welcome to attend the hearings.
