The Tribune (NZ) - - SQUARE CIRCULAR -

Hello ev­ery­body - over the next month or so we will be seek­ing your feed­back on the Draft Her­itage Strat­egy.

Coun­cil wants cit­i­zens to un­der­stand and ap­pre­ci­ate the past. The draft Strat­egy sug­gests how we can pro­tect our her­itage and tell sto­ries about our whaka­papa. It is also about how Coun­cil can sup­port own­ers of her­itage prop­erty, par­tic­u­larly earth­quake prone build­ings.

We will also be con­sult­ing on two re­vised by­laws. They largely con­firm ex­ist­ing pro­ce­dures. A pro­posed new Waste Man­age­ment and Min­imi­sa­tion By­law puts part of the cur­rent Nui­sance By­law into a spe­cific Waste By­law that will re­quire waste col­lec­tion firms to be li­censed. This will give us bet­ter in­for­ma­tion for waste min­imi­sa­tion plan­ning. The re­main­der of the Nui­sance By­law would then be re­named the Ur­ban Fire Con­trol By­law. Peo­ple will still be re­quired to get a per­mit for open air fires in the ur­ban area.

We have been talk­ing with peo­ple about the best site for the He Ara Ko­tahi Manawatū River Pedes­trian and Cy­cle Bridge, and we will have fol­low-up dis­cus­sions with res­i­dents and stake­hold­ers on that.

For more in­for­ma­tion on when and how to have your say on these please check our web­site:­coun­cil/con­sul­ta­tion­sini­tia­tives- and-projects/

And re­mem­ber you can al­ways talk with the Mayor or a Coun­cil­lor about any top­ics you are in­ter­ested in – their con­tact details are in the Square Cir­cu­lar.
