Anyone wanting to complain or comment about the council’s plans for the city can learn how at the Tauranga Environment Centre tonight.
A free seminar showing how to make submissions on the council’s Ten Year Plan begins at the TEC’s historic village centre at 7.15pm.
Submissions on the Tauranga City Council’s Ten Year Plan close this Friday, April 20. People still have another week to make submissions on the Regional Council’s plan, which closes on April 27.
A seminar is being held at the Tauranga Environment Centre at Historic Village to help people making submissions on the council’s Ten Year Plan.
The centre has organised speakers to make presentations on a number of key issues included in the draft plan.
TEC spokesman Glen Crowther says speakers will present information on issues and outline why they recommend people make a submission.
“We’ll also have a Tauranga City Council representative on hand to clarify points and answer questions.”
Bay Of Plenty Regional Councillor Paula Thompson will give a short presentation on the Regional Council Ten Year Plan and be available to discuss issues relating to the plan.
“We will have computers available after the presentations to type an online submission, and pen and paper for hand-written submissions, so you can go away having completed your submission on the night,” says Glen.
The free seminar is in Building 89 through the first entrance on the right at the bottom of the hill by the Wickham School.
People are free to bring nibbles and need to call 578 6664 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm attendance.
