SWAP FOOD FOR PAINT

North Taranaki Midweek - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

The Hunger for Colour fundraiser is back. The ini­tia­tive, which runs from Feb­ru­ary 1-28, in­vites peo­ple to head to one of 65 Re­sene ColorShops around the coun­try and swap cans of food for 60-80ml test pots of Re­sene paint. The cans are then do­nated to their lo­cal Sal­va­tion Army food bank.

LEAD­ING THE WAY

NPDC is lead­ing e-plan­ning in New Zealand and has drafted its new District Plan di­rectly into an e-plan. Fo­cus­ing on the user, any per­son will be able to use the on­line in­ter­ac­tive tool. In a few clicks they can find in­for­ma­tion on their prop­erty any­time, any­where – rather than look­ing through doc­u­ments for the in­for­ma­tion they need – mak­ing the plan more ac­ces­si­ble. The Dig­i­tal District Plan will be on­line at new­ply­mouthnz.com/ DraftDistric­tPlan.

New Ply­mouth District mayor

Neil Holdom has wel­comed Gov­ern­ment moves to find a so­lu­tion to the na­tion­wide free­dom camp­ing prob­lems. Tourism Min­is­ter Kelvin Davis has in­vited 22 may­ors to meet him early next month to dis­cuss this mat­ter fol­low­ing a big rise in free­dom campers and the neg­a­tive im­pact this was hav­ing on some com­mu­ni­ties. ‘‘NPDC will be ac­tively in­volved in these dis­cus­sions to find a way to wel­come free­dom campers while en­sur­ing they are not putting too much pres­sure on fa­cil­i­ties,’’ said Holdom.
