Feedback wanted

Bylaw consultation1

It’s all about community consultation and gathering feedback over the next couple of months.

Wairoa District Council is currently engaging with the community on its Waters Bylaws, Cemeteries Bylaw and proposed Development Contributions Policy. Plus, consultation around the Council’s Annual Plan will begin in May.

Wairoa District Council Chief Executive Kitea Tipuna said gathering public thoughts and opinions is a very important part of how Council functions. “Councils exist to lead and represent its communities and engagement and participation is key to that.

“There is a lot going on at the moment, but we really do encourage people to be involved and share their views.

“We have made the feedback process as easy as possible and hope there will be a really high response to the items that we are currently engaging on. It is important to remember that social media comments or writing letters to newspapers is not a formal part of our information gathering. People who would like to make a submission need to follow the Council process so feedback can be correctly gathered.

You can make a submission to the Cemeteries and waters bylaws online: or the proposed Development Contributions bylaw 

You can also email your thoughts to, by post to Bylaws Consultation c/o Wairoa District Council Governance Team, 97 Queen Street, Wairoa, or in person to the Wairoa District Council Office, Coronation Square, Wairoa.
