Last call for contributing to the Raglan Naturally survey

It’s the last chance to have your say in the Raglan Naturally survey which closes on Monday, December 3.

Raglan Naturally coordinator Gabrielle Parson says the survey is not your typical boring form and there are some great questions which will get you thinking. 

“If you get carried away and have a lot to say, please fill it out online or attach another page to the printed survey. Fill in as much as you can and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.”

All input is of value, Gabrielle says, and will inform the 2019 plan, which will shape Whaingaroa’s future direction and development including – housing, zoning, parking, youth, tourism, connectivity and roads, environment and water quality, and community and council relationships.

“We want to provide the opportunity for as many people as possible to have their say. It’s important that we get a range of voices from around Whaingaroa,” she says.

She is also keen to have a strong youth voice feeding into the survey as they are often missed in the community planning process.  “If you know of young people between the ages of 16 and 23, please encourage them to take part.  We are working to support all voices to be heard and included in our process.”

Designed as a living document, the Raglan Naturally community plan will guide and manage growth and development as Whaingaroa continues to build towards a more active role in the future of the community.
