The Waikato District Blueprint will help realise the overall vision established by Council for the district, which is to create Liveable, Thriving and Connected Communities – He noohanga aahuru, he iwi whai ora, he hapori tuuhono tahi.

In 2018 we came to your town to hear what was important to you and what you wanted to see in your community in the future. During these workshops we heard lots of great ideas and information.

In early 2019 we asked for your feedback on your top three priorities for your town, along with your priorities for the district. These priorities will  be used by Council to help make some decisions as we move into the next Long Term Plan period.

In June 2019 the Waikato District Blueprint was approved by Council.

What's next?

In June and July 2020 we hosted a further round of community meetings to check in with each community about their priorities. We wanted to find out which initiatives the community want to lead, what Council should be taking a lead in and what we can do together.

Feedback closed on 17 July.

It’s important to note that just because a project or initiative might be in the Blueprint, it doesn’t mean it will happen straight away, or even at all. If it does happen, the project may not necessarily be Council funded. Instead  this might be a perfect opportunity for a community to drive, with funding from other agencies and  Council’s support.
