Have Your Say

Welcome to the Manawatu District Council's dedicated consultation site. Public Consultations are your opportunity to give us feedback on a wide-variety of issues before they are finalised by Council. In some cases your feedback may be requested on several occasions before it is finalised.

We advertise through various mediums when a public consultation period is open. You can also check this site to see what we are currently consulting on.

Our staff are happy to assist with any questions you may have prior to making a submission. Their contact details will be listed with each issue.

We have the following topics available for consultation:

District Planning Service Charges

District planning service charges enable Council to recover the costs of processing applications, monitoring consents, for notice of requirement designations and private District Plan changes.

We are asking for submissions on the proposed charges before 9am on Monday 1 April, 2019.

Food Act Fees & Charges

The Food Act 2014 provides the Council with the ability to fix fees to recover the direct and indirect costs of Council’s functions under the Act.

We are asking for submissions on the proposed fees and charges before 9am on Monday 1 April, 2019.

Feilding Town Centre 2040

What will the Feilding Town Centre be like in 2040? How do you imagine Feilding should be in the future?

We have now completed over 6 weeks of consultation with the community to help us to create a vision for the Feilding Town Centre 2040. The vision will guide Council, businesses, and the community, and will provide confidence that our town centre is relevant, vibrant, and welcoming to our future selves.

Please click here to see the results so far and how we got there (2.5MB pdf), or click here to view the original consultation pages.

The next steps for the project will be to analyse all of the feedback we have been given. It is our intention to bring a vision for the Feilding Town Centre 2040 to the community later in 2019.

To all Manawatū community members who contributed ideas and feedback, THANK YOU! We will keep you in the loop as the project progresses.
