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:

Dangerous, Affected and Insanitary Buildings Policy

The dangerous and insanitary building policy is proposed to be updated to take into account changes in legislation, to correct referencing errors and to reflect the name change of the New Zealand Historic Places Trust to Heritage New Zealand Pouhere Taonga.

This policy review will allow Council to meet their legislative requirements more effectively and will provide clear information to the public and Council staff.

Gambling Venues Policy

All Councils are required by the Gambling Act 2003 and the Racing Act 2003 to adopt a class 4 venue policy and a board venue policy, and to review those policies at least every 3 years.

The current Manawatu District Council’s Gambling Venue Policy adopted in September 2014 is now requiring review.
