This will be a blueprint for our district for the next 30-plus years. It will provide the foundation for all of our future planning, help us identify opportunities for growth and investment and help us to prioritise where and how we invest.
It is also so much more than that, it’s about placemaking, shaping what we want our towns and villages to look and feel like. It’s about connecting people and the places they share, live, work, play and invest in, and it is about making our community a place to be proud of.
There’s a lot to consider when creating this plan including:
We’ll use what you told us during the development of our vision and community outcomes and what we currently know about our district as a starting point. From there, we will need your help to develop the community spatial plan and help shape our future Waipā.
We can’t do this alone, after all this is your community. Together, we can successfully deliver on our vision to be the Home of Champions, and to build connected Waipā communities.
Garry DyetWaipā District Council Chief Executive
Earlier this year, alongside our Mana Whenua partners, we used what you told us during the development of our vision and community outcomes in 2020 and what we currently know about our district to develop five future scenarios.
These scenarios consider how our community might evolve in the future in response to change, such as population growth, and economic and demographic change. We’ll choose the best parts of these scenarios to create a preferred scenario which will form the basis of the draft community spatial plan.
