Village Planning Workshop Inspiring

Yesterday Connecting Communities Wairarapa hosted  Masterton District Councillors, Senior Staff  & Carterton District Council Staff for a stimulating presentation from Poirirua City Council around Village Planning. Poirira City Councillor Ken Douglas and Council staff Ian Barlow and Claire Giblin gave an exciting presentation which Masterton Councillors and Staff saw as visionary. Everyone present felt as though they now fully understood the process of communities planning for themselves, its advantages for Council and for the community. The process here in Masterton has begun as Neighbourhood Planning in Lansdowne led by Sandy Ryan.
