Welcome to It's About You!

Consultation has concluded

The engagement for the community conversation phase has now finished. This is phase one of three phases. So thank you for taking part so far! From sharing your story about what makes Western Bay special to you, to attending one of the community conversations and giving us your feedback.

We're now going through all your opinions and ideas. We'll check in with you later regarding the main themes of what you've told us and the next steps in regards to our 10-year plan for the District. Stay tuned!

In the meantime you can read the feedback received at those community conversation events ('Your Feedback' section):

What makes the Western Bay of Plenty so special? In a word - YOU!
