Have your say on making Gisborne awesome

The second of three Long Term Plan (LTP) public workshops will be held on Tuesday 26 August 5.30pm at the Lawson Field Theatre.

The workshop will outline plans and opportunities for improving parks, walk ways and public spaces.

“We want to attract people to urban and rural hubs, parks and reserves, beaches, waterways, walk and cycle ways, and make them fun and interesting.” Says Nedine Thatcher-Swann, Council’s Community Planning and Development Group Manager.

Presentations from guest speakers include Mayor Meng Foon sharing plans for the Tairawhiti Navigations Project;
Parks and recreation specialist, Geoff Canham will highlight international trends and exciting ideas for our public spaces, and Steve Sawyer from Ecoworks will outline how we can all play a role in improving biodiversity in our local communities.

The Mayor encourages anyone in the community attend and be prepared to share your ideas with council.

“We want to hear what the community wants next.”
Further details about the workshop and guest speakers are available on our website www.gdc.govt.nz . Or tell us what you think on Facebook or Instagram @gisbornedc.

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>>
