Maria Place looking towards Pukenamu Queens Park

We’ve written a draft heritage strategy, guided by community feedback from stakeholder engagement and last year’s heritage survey – and we’d love to hear what you think!

This is an important step for Whanganui because it’s the first time we will have a broad strategy for the sector.

Our draft Heritage Strategy is intended to support historic heritage within the Whanganui District. It provides a vision, goals and tailored guidance via a five-year action plan.

The aim is to ensure and encourage the sustainable management of historic heritage assets, like buildings, structures and features, while supporting the council’s ongoing work with local heritage.

Now we’re keen to hear your feedback on the draft strategy so we can take your ideas into consideration as we develop a final strategy document.

Whanganui’s heritage is something we can all enjoy, so it’s important everyone has the chance to be part of shaping this document.

Submissions close at 5.00pm on Sunday, 12 September 2021.

Note: Late submissions delayed by COVID-19 may be received after this date - email Scott.Flutey@whanganui.govt.nz
