Wairoa District Council have made their call.
Wairoa District Council and the Maori Committee have made submissions to the Local Government Commission on the draft proposal to create one Hawke's Bay Council. Following hearing, the LGC will produce a final proposal. This is likely to result in a petition calling for a referendum, in which registered voters will have a chance to say 'YES' or 'NO' to amalgamation.
A ‘can do' attitude combined with an injection of super-modern technology has resulted in an exciting new partnership between the revitalised Gaiety Theatre and internationally-recognised film production company Starkraving.
