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 (e.g. Annual Plan, Long Term Plan, Bylaw and Policy Reviews, etc.) or as part of a community or other project.
The projects listed below and in the left had menu are open consultations we would like your feedback on. Feedback from Ruapehu communities and other interested parties on matters Council is consulting on have a real influence and impact on Council's final decision on the matter. Your opinion matters and does make a difference.
We understand that people can often find Council's processes or requirements for having your say on something complex and confusing. Likewise, we want to make the process for you to find out about what we are asking for feedback on as simple and as easy as possible.
If you have any queries on how to have your say please emailCandice McNaughtor call her at Council on 07 895 8188 or 06 385 8364.
