Community Plans

Horowhenua is made up of many different neighbourhoods and communities, all of whom have their own unique identity and special characteristics from the Tararua Ranges to the sea.

We want to ensure we keep what’s special and support projects that are important to each community.

A Community Plan is the voice of that community and will highlight their goals and aspirations. It will outline what the community wants to preserve in their area and outline ways to enhance and develop other areas of importance.

We want to hear from you

Tell us what makes your community special and what your dreams and aspirations are for your community.

The first communities Council will be working with to create their Community Plans are Manakau, Ōhau, Waitārere Beach and Levin. If you live, work or play in any of these areas we want to hear from you.

If this isn’t you don’t worry! Council will be working with the other communities in the district over the coming years. The aim is to have Community Plans which represent all of the district.
