Wairarapa Voice responses
You can view our responses:
We encourage all Wairarapa Citizens to make their views on the plan known by making a submission to the GWRC. To be taken into account it needs to be received at GWRC by Sunday 29th April 2018 and for practical purposes this means that it needs to be posted by Wednesday 25th April.
We have prepared short submission documents that you can download :
Either sign or modify it then post it to GWRC to reach them by the closing date Sunday 29 April 2018.
Long Term Plan - Consultation
We have reviewed the GWRC Long Term Plan and identified a number of issues. We encourage you to read our document and make a submission..
Flood protection rates
We are objecting to the GWRC proposal to massively increase the costs to us of flood protection schemes by changing the rating system that has been in place for 26 years. If you feel strongly about this issue then we encourage you take a look at the excellent in-depth information that is here on the site of the Waiohine Action Group.
If you need a hand to make your submission or wish to talk about it, you can contact:
Ron on 021 191 1337
