Hurunui: Final Call To Board The LTP Train

17 April 2018

Final Call To Board The LTP Train

The Hurunui District Council is reminding all residents that they are invited to a special get together with councillors on board the Weka Pass Diesel Train on Thursday 19 April, 6-8pm, as part of the Long Term Plan 2018-2028 (LTP) consultation. However, they only have until 5pm tomorrow Wednesday 18 April to secure their seat.

This year the council is taking a novel approach to its consultation process, and reflecting the LTP’s theme ‘Keeping On Track’, members of the public have the opportunity to discuss what is important to them with their councillors, as they travel along the Weka Pass Railway.

Council CEO, Hamish Dobbie, says the meeting on the train will be a one off opportunity and a change from the usual meeting in a hall. This is an informal chance to chat with councilors about the council’s plans and work programme for the next 10 years.

“Hurunui residents can share their views one on one with councillors while enjoying their surrounds on board what is one of our district’s iconic tourism attractions. I encourage them to secure their free seat on board the train by 5pm tomorrow.”

RSVPs can be sent to: info@hurunui.govt.nz or confirmed by phoning the council directly on 314 8816.
