This is your last chance to help shape the future of the District by taking part in our Let’s Kōrero public conversation.
For the past three weeks people have been feeding in ideas for some big projects on our books as part of the next Annual Plan. Almost 1,400 people have so far completed the short survey which closes on April 2.
“It’s been awesome to see people getting involved and chatting with us about everything from what features a Coastal Walkway extension to Waitara could include, to what we do with the Colson Rd dump site when we close it this year, and whether we invest more in the War on Pests as we strive for a Predator Free Taranaki. It takes a lot of hard work and good ideas to Build a Lifestyle Capital, so it’s been great to see so many people stepping forward with suggestions,” says New Plymouth District Mayor Neil Holdom.
Some of the most popular ideas so far have included turning the Colson Road landfill site in to a wildlife corridor or dog park while an all-weather piano and access for horses, have been suggestions around extending the coastal walkway from Bell Block to Waitara.
