Ongoing consultation

Let's Connect logo

Whanganui District Council is starting to draft the next Long-Term Plan for the district.

The Long-Term Plan provides a road map for the next decade, from 2021-2031. It details where we aim to be, what we will need to do to get there, and how much it will cost. An important part of the process is engaging with you, the community, to get your thoughts and ideas about the district.

Leading Edge surveys

The Long-Term Plan will be guided by Council’s strategic vision for Whanganui to be Leading Edge. This includes five key strands that Council intends to focus on in order to realise the vision of an energised, united and thriving district that offers abundant opportunities for everyone. The five strands are: Community, Connectivity, Creativity, Environment, and Economy.

We are revisiting our objectives under each of these strands to make sure that these still match up with the community’s aspirations. We are also refining our areas of focus so that we are clear about what each strand is committed to achieving.

We would love to hear your thoughts on these strands. We want to know if we have got the focus areas right and whether you have any other ideas on what should also be included. This will help us to develop actions that best support the delivery of the strategy.

Let us know what you think about our focus areas for each Leading Edge strand by taking our surveys below. Feel free to feedback on as many of the five strands as you like.

Community Conversations

Let’s connect in person! We are hosting a number of public events where you can come and have a chat to us about your ideas and aspirations for Whanganui over the next 10 years. Your input will contribute to the development of the Long-Term Plan 2021-2031.
