GDC Long Term Plan Consultation

Do you know what our Council is planning for sport and recreation in Tairāwhiti? You can influence this by submitting to GDC’s upcoming Long Term Plan (LTP). The LTP consultation process is the main opportunity for local people to have their say in council decision-making. Your organisation is therefore encouraged to make a submission on the key issues facing it in respect to council’s activities and services. If you don’t make your views known you are likely to miss out.


Why bother?

  • Because Councils are major providers of sports and recreation facilities – without Council supporting the development of sporting facilities much of what happens in our sector wouldn’t be possible
  • Draft LTPs are the opportunity to make a submission on what the council plans to do for your community over the next 10 years
  • Because Councils are not immune from the current economic climate. They have to make tough choices about the mix of services they provide. For some, this may mean limiting or even reducing funding for some sports and recreation services
