Manakau Community Plan

Ongoing consultation

Every neighbourhood and community is unique; each with their own identity and special characteristics. A Community Plan is the voice of the community – it highlights common goals and aspirations, and how we will achieve them.

We want to hear from you about what you think is most important in Manakau and what you see as the future of your community.

There have been a number of opportunities for people to have their say on the Manakau Community Plan so far:

  • A drop-in session was held on Sunday, 28 July 2019. Over 25 people stopped in during the session to have their say.
  • An online survey was open from 8 July to 12 August 2019. A total of 53 survey responses were received.

The feedback received is now being analysed and next steps identified.

What is a Community Plan?

Every neighbourhood and community is different; each with their own unique identity and special characteristics. A Community Plan is the voice of the community – it highlights their goals and aspirations, and how we will achieve them.

Why is it important?

Our unique neighbourhoods and communities are what make Horowhenua a fantastic place to live, work and play. A Community Plan will help preserve the areas that the community think are most special and outline ways we will enhance and develop other areas of importance to create the community, those who live there, want for the future.

Who should be involved?

Everyone! Every person in our communities contributes to what makes it unique. 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.

How can I be involved?
