IT’S YOUR TURN TO TELL US WHAT YOU THINK
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: www.pncc.govt.nz/yourcouncil/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.
