A focus on community outcomes
The Hurunui District Council has reconfirmed the intended community outcomes of its 2018-2028 Long Term Plan (LTP) which will guide the council’s future decision making.
The six outcomes agreed to by the council are to make the Hurunui district: a desirable and safe place to live; a place where our traditional rural values and heritage make Hurunui unique; a place with a thriving local economy; a place with essential and appropriate infrastructure; a place that demonstrates environmental responsibility.
Public services manager Audrey van der Monde said the community outcomes aligned with the council’s strategic direction for today and for future generations.
All proposals put forward in the LTP would have those outcomes at heart, she said, which would place the community at the centre of all council operations.
Mayor Winton Dalley said the agreed outcomes would help the council to deliver its aspirations for the region’s communities.
‘‘The council has a responsibility to its residents and ratepayers and these community outcomes bring a focus to that.’’
The six community outcomes adopted by the council will now be included as part of the 20182028 LTP, with public consultation on the plan beginning next year.
Huranui Mayor Winton Dalley vows to keep the community at the centre of council decision making.
