AMAL­GA­MA­TION VOTE ON HORI­ZON

Wairarapa News - - CONVERSATIONS -

‘‘All I can do is give a bal­anced view right now, I can’t ac­tu­ally say if I do or don’t sup­port it. It’s now up to the vot­ers to look at the pro­posal and work through and un­der­stand it.’’

WHAT PROJECTS ARE IN THE PIPE­LINE?

The coun­cil is look­ing to in­crease in­fra­struc­ture for tourism on the coast, and has made an ap­pli­ca­tion to the govern­ment’s Tourism In­fra­struc­ture Fund to help pay for that. ‘‘We’d like to get toi­lets on the Ngawi and the Tora coasts, en­large the area for camper­vans at Ngawi, and help sort out prob­lems with rub­bish there too.’’

WHAT DOES THE WAIRARAPA CHAM­BER OF COM­MERCE THINK?

The Gen­eral Man­ager of Wairarapa Cham­ber of Com­merce, Cather­ine Ros­siter-Stead, said South Wairarapa was for­tu­nate to have some ex­tremely tal­ented and mo­ti­vated in­di­vid­u­als among its pop­u­la­tion. They were highly skilled and had in­vested both time and money into their own en­ter­prises in the district. With sup­port­ive com­mu­nity boards, and coun­cil fund­ing for or­gan­i­sa­tions such as Desti­na­tionWairarapa, some amaz­ing things were hap­pen­ing in all three towns, en­sur­ing that South Wairarapa was a great place to live, work and visit.
