We’re on the road again

10 November, 2017

We’re on the road again

The Waikato district is unique. From beaches to ranges, expressways to gravel roads - how we live, work and play varies across the district and there can be different rules depending on where you live.

Currently the District Plan, which is the ‘rule book’ that manages the way land is used, developed and subdivided in the Waikato district, is in draft mode and we want to hear what you think.

Changes that are being introduced in the draft District Plan include a number of new zones including a village zone and a deferred zone for growth.

Another exciting aspect is the papakaainga development changes which will allow Maaori land to be developed with multiple housing and commercial opportunities.

“Join us on the road in the Waikato as we work together to plan our district and find out about the draft District Plan. Look at what’s new and have a chance to talk with the district policy planners to offer your views,” General Manager Strategy and Support Tony Whittaker says.

“In November and December we’re stopping off in different communities across the district to chat to the locals. Whether you’re planning to divide your section, renovate or build, you want to run a business from home or organise a community event, then you need to join the journey.

“Once we have your feedback on the draft District Plan it will be finalised and then notified in early 2018,” Mr Whittaker says.

We’re on the road in the Waikato!

Gordon Campbell: On Cancel Culture And The ‘hate Speech’ Laws

If there really is anyone out there who feels genuinely panicked about what ‘cancel culture' is doing to our precious freedoms, then maybe they should just take a deep breath, look hard at who has allegedly been ‘ cancelled’ and see if they can detect any trace of a lasting “cancellation“ effect. Chances are, the alleged cancellees will be doing just fine. By and large, they will be people who do not lack for a public platform – never have, never will – and the downstream effects of being “ cancelled” will almost invariably be trending towards zero...
