Submissions open for ten year plan


The Nelson City Council is after feedback on it’s Ten Year Plan released today.

The plan outlines the future direction of the city and is open for public consultation from 26 March–12pm, 28 April.

Mayor Rachel Reese says it is about balancing investment needed to make Nelson an even better place, with affordability for ratepayers.

“We believe this Plan has the essentials needed: a balance of core infrastructure to keep Nelson safe and functioning well, along with projects that enhance the city and make it exciting and welcoming. It has a long term rather than a short term focus.”

“The Consultation Document sets out the key projects Council would like to focus on and now we would like to hear from the community, this Plan will only come to life if it truly reflects the wishes of those that live here,” She says.

Copies of the Consultation Document are available from the council building, Nelson Public Libraries and online.

Resident submissions must be received no later than 12pm Tuesday 28 April 2015.

Submissions are also being invited in respect of the development contributions policy, the funding impact statement (rates), revenue and financing policy, rates remission policy and resource consent fees and charges.
