Manaaki Toiora Strategy


The Manaaki Toiroa adopted

At the Council meeting on 23 February 2022, the Council adopted the Manaaki Toiora Strategy.

About our Strategy

The Strategy sets out the work we’ll continue to undertake alongside our communities and stakeholders to positively influence the wellbeing of people and communities. It identifies our five priority areas for the next ten years.

Going forward the Council would like to work closer with communities on the five priority areas and the associated actions. The priority areas are:

  • Well-housed people;
  • Healthy people;
  • Vibrant creative spaces;
  • Business attraction and supporting local; and
  • Growing skill and the local workforce.

We can’t thrive without a healthy environment. While this Strategy doesn’t specifically outline how we’re working toward improving environmental wellbeing, environmental considerations will underpin all our work.

Thanks for letting us know your thoughts. The opportunity to provide feedback has now closed.

The draft Manaaki Toiora Strategy was prepared based on community feedback received during the 2021-31 Long Term Plan process and was work-shopped with community members and organisations in November 2021, prior to adoption.

As a result of engagement with the community we decided to retain the five key priority areas in the draft Strategy.
We also decided to make some changes as a result of your feedback, including:

  • A commitment that we will provide more local community involvement in planning and project delivery,
  • A clear goal under each priority area, and
  • New actions to reflect stakeholder feedback.
