Our 10-year strategy

Everyone in New Zealand is dealing with the implications of COVID-19 and lockdown measures, and council’s immediate focus is to support our people and our region through this time.

Since midnight, Wednesday 25 March we have been at Level 4 of the COVID-19 alert system and this is expected to be in place for at least four weeks.

An online meeting of council has been scheduled for late April where we anticipate their consideration and approval to adopt our re-worked 10-year strategy. At the same time, we expect to be able to share the final strategy with you. We’ll keep you updated on developments on this page.
