JOINT MEDIA STATEMENT

Councils Working Together on Response to the Mackenzie Country Trust Proposal

The release of the report on the Mackenzie Agreement and the Mackenzie Country Trust has been noted by Mackenzie District Council, Waitaki District Council, and Environment Canterbury and is expected to be formally received by each council in due course.

The report sets out the shared vision of the Mackenzie Agreement, and a proposal to establish the Mackenzie Country Trust with a new piece of legislation.

The shared vision – as set out in the report – represents the agreed position between the local community and national organisations with an interest in the Mackenzie area.

The three councils will work together to consider the report. This will include how the councils can respond to the report through Resource Management Act plans and the work of the Upper Waitaki zone committee.

The three councils will also advise local community members and national stakeholders of their response to the report and likely actions.

Election Day: Make Sure You're A Part Of It!

Saturday 20 September, is election day, and New Zealanders’ last chance to have a say on who leads the country for the next three years.

“The people and parties we elect tomorrow will be making the decisions that affect us, our families and our communities,” says Robert Peden, Chief Electoral Officer. “It doesn’t get much more important than that, and we need all New Zealanders to use their voice and vote.”

Voting places will be open from 9.00am until 7.00pm on election day. The busiest time at voting places is usually 9.00am - 11.00am.

“Take your EasyVote card with you when you go to vote, as it will make voting faster and easier, and vote close to home if you can. But don’t worry if you forget your card, or didn’t receive one, because as long as you are enrolled to vote, your voice will be heard,” says Mr Peden. More>>
