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:
