We want your thoughts

The Tribune (NZ) - - SAVOUR -

It’s your turn to tell us what you think. The Coun­cil makes lots of de­ci­sions about day to day things that af­fect you. The bet­ter we un­der­stand your views, the bet­ter de­ci­sions we make. That’s why we con­sult with you.

We are pre­par­ing de­vel­op­ment plans for Memo­rial Park and Waitoe­toe Re­serve. Memo­rial Park al­ready has a wide range of ac­tiv­i­ties for the whole fam­ily. You can feed the ducks, cool off in the pad­dling pool on a hot sum­mer day, or watch a foot­ball match. Waitoe­toe Re­serve is at the bot­tom of Maxwell’s Line and in­cludes the wilder­ness area down to the River. Both ar­eas pro­vide lots of op­por­tu­ni­ties for recre­ation and we want to get a wide range of ideas on how to best use them. So, what would you do with them? Be­tween now and the end of Novem­ber we will be hold­ing events, such as a Memo­rial Park Fun Day on the 26 Novem­ber, to make it easy to have your say. If you want more in­for­ma­tion please go to our web­site. We are also de­vel­op­ing a Waste­water By­law. Waste­water is ba­si­cally what goes ‘down the drain’ from your home, work, school, sports club, etc. The by­law will set the rules about what peo­ple can put down the drains, how build­ings can be con­nected to the waste­water sys­tem, and who is re­spon­si­ble for fix­ing block­ages to the sys­tem. It is very im­por­tant that we un­der­stand peo­ple’s ex­pec­ta­tions and get it right. We need to hear from you by the 11 Novem­ber. For more in­for­ma­tion about ei­ther of these, check our web­site:­sul­ta­tions
