Hui on the future of our city

Hui on the future of our city

Waitakere City Council is about to review its Long Term Council Community Plan (LTCCP) and is calling on Maori to be involved and have their say on the city’s long term direction.

A hui is being organized in conjunction with Te Taumata Runanga, to hear people’s views.

The Waitakere LTCCP, first written in 2003/2004 after extensive consultation, set a vision for the next twenty years and describes the features, facilities and services residents wanted to see being put in place over the next 10 years, to achieve that vision.

By law, councils have to refresh their LTCCPs, in consultation with their community, every three years.

Waitakere’s updated LTCCP will be consulted on during 2006 and be published in a draft form, for submissions, in April next year. It will be adopted in June 2006 and cover the period 2006/2007 to 2016/2017.

How Maori see the City in the next ten years; what they most value about their neighbourhood; and what their main concerns are relating to the future of Waitakere, are all questions being asked in a project to set out the strategy that will take Waitakere City forward into the next decade.

For catering purposes those wishing to attend should contact the Council’s call centre on 839 0400 or by email info@waitakere.govt.nz. If anyone has transport or childcare requirements they are also welcome to contact the call centre for assistance.
