What’s our future, Canterbury?
Earlier this year we asked you to help us answer, ‘What’s our future, Canterbury?’ We ran an online survey, and hosted webinars and in-person events which were well attended.
We asked this question because we are in the process of updating some of our key planning documents and wanted to know what kind of place you want Waitaha/Canterbury to be in the years to come.
In the coming weeks we’ll come back to you about what we’ve heard, and provide information about some proposed Freshwater Management Unit boundaries. We’re also interested to hear your thoughts on different flood management tools, and want to get your opinion on some environmental and climate change aspirations that we have for the region. Keep an eye on our website ecan.govt.nz/ourfuture for updates.
By the time you hear from me again, we may have a new Government.
This could mean there will be new challenges for us to navigate as a regional council, but it will also give us some opportunities that we plan to make the most of.
