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:

Long Term Plan 2018-2028

Consultation on Manawatū District’s Long Term Plan begins on 3 April and will run until 3 May.

We will be seeking your input into two key issues: Rates and Drainage. Once the consultation is open you will be able to find the information you require and how you can make a submission to support or oppose the proposed changes.

Representation Review Discussion

We want to know what you think about Governance arrangements for the Manawatū District.

Every six years all Councils in New Zealand review their representation arrangements, following a process contained in the Local Electoral Act.

One of the principles that the Act is designed to implement is “fair and effective representation for individuals and communities”.

Help us design Feilding Growth Precinct 4

Manawatu Council is working together with landowners, developers, iwi and hapu to collaboratively decide what the Pharazyn Street area – which could provide housing for more than 1700 people – should look like.

Work on the Precinct 4 growth area has moved into the master planning phase – modelling what the area could actually look like.
