Ōtorohanga District Council promised to develop a concept plan for the Ōtorohanga township and now it’s time for you to get involved!
Ōtorohanga District Council has teamed up with consultants from Resilio Studio, WSP, and Drawn to develop the Ōtorohanga Town Concept Plan, or for short the ŌTCP.
What is a Town Concept Plan?
The ŌTCP will determine where and how our town can grow, as well as help guide future developments in and around the town centre.
Why your views matter
To produce a great plan that meets the needs and aspirations of the whole community, it’s super important that the ŌTCP Team hear your thoughts and ideas. We need to understand your vision, aspirations and the opportunities you see for our town. Equally, we need to know what you think the challenges are that could prevent Ōtorohanga from reaching its full potential.
Drop in sessions for phase 2a are completed, we’ll let you know details on phase 3 soon.
The Survey for phase 2 has now closed, well let you know when the draft plan is ready for your feedback.
How you can participate...
The OTCP team have gathered your thoughts and ideas through surveys, public drop-in sessions and sector specific sessions during the months of May and June as part of phase 2a, shown in the timeline below.
We are now moving in to phase 2b where our consultants will collate your feedback and combine it with information on the Ōtorohanga environment, culture, social makeup, economy and infrastructure, to create a DRAFT Ōtorohanga Town Concept Plan, to lead us into the future.
In July we'll bring that draft back to you, to ensure that what we heard was correct and give you a chance to tell us what you think.
Keep an eye out here for your chance to share your thoughts on the draft plan!
