Manaaki Toiora Strategy


We are seeking your feedback on our Draft Manaaki Toiora Strategy.

The Manaaki Toiroa Committee

Late last year the Council discharged the Community Growth Committee (main focus was economic development) and Social Strategy Working Party (main focus was social wellbeing) and established the Manaaki Toiora Committee. The primary role of the Committee is to work alongside communities and key stakeholders to take action that positively influences the social, cultural and economic wellbeing of people.

Our draft Manaaki Toiora Strategy

The Manaaki Toiora Committee has developed a draft Strategy to guide its work. The draft Strategy is based on previous engagement the Council has undertaken on economic and social development, and the more recent community feedback received during the 2021-23 Long Term Plan process.

The proposed priority areas of work are; well-housed people, healthy people, vibrant creative spaces, business attraction and supporting local, and growing skills and the local workforce.

The Mayor and Councillors would like to know what you think about the proposed priority areas and actions in the draft Strategy, and other matters that they may not have considered.
