Straterra welcomes Government plans

Straterra welcomes the Prime Minister’s address to Parliament today as a sensible, measured plan for progressing New Zealand’s economic development in a very challenging global market.

“Our industry has always supported Government’s drive to help business deliver more and higher-paying jobs for New Zealanders whilst protecting our environment.

“To attract the investment needed for these jobs we need a transparent, stable, fair and competitive regulatory regime and Mr Key’s comments today show the Government remains committed to make this happen,” says Straterra Chief Executive Officer, Chris Baker.

Over the coming year, Mr Key said the Government would remain focused on opportunities to use New Zealand’s natural resources productively while maintaining environmental standards that preserve and enhance the quality of our environment.

He said the Government is also pushing ahead with policy development in a number of areas that have in common the need for a better functioning system of planning and resource management – one that enables growth and provides strong environmental outcomes, and does so in a timely and cost-effective way.

“Straterra will do all it can to work with Government to achieve these outcomes,” Mr Baker says.

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>>
