What were we told?
Some of what we heard includes:
support for improvements to walking and cycling connectivity, increased protection around the peat lakes and improvements to bus services
support for the planting of more native vegetation across the district and in general for the environmental outcomes proposed in the interim draft plan
a mix of support for and concern about the development of more housing choices (duplexes, townhouses and apartments) in our main towns
concern about whether there are enough schools in Waipā to cater for our growing population
many of our smaller communities told us they did not want to lose the small village feel of their homes.
