Being one of a few people who attended the open consultation process of the local council's 10 year plan I was very concerned about the proposed water take over by Government probably by the end of this year giving very little time for all councils to discuss this matter with the public. Full details have not yet been presented to Councils. This will cover water to your property. Grey wastewater and also storm water. So think of what is happened with Health Boards and the many problems there. This could be the future of your water. You will all be paying rates directly to a yet faceless organisation. You will be forced to accept fluoride whether it is good or not !!? If Government forced companies to greatly reduce sugar contents in drinks and food then there will not be so many teeth problems. I am doing my bit now do yours . Spread the word NO to Government controlling our water.
Your community trust has rebranded. TSB Community Trust is now Toi Foundation, supported by the strapline, a thriving, inclusive and equitable Taranaki.
Both the rebrand, and new strategy (released in 2020), are part of a bold vision to guide the organisation into the future as we look to not only continue support of Taranaki and its people in our traditional, philanthropic way, but invest in, facilitate, and co-create meaningful and effective opportunities that have long-term and intergenerational impact.

I am writing a story on New Plymouth's proposal for water meters and I am looking for someone to talk to about their thoughts on water meters (and someone who is willing to be photographed for a story).
What are your thoughts on water meters? Send me an email: firstname.lastname@example.org
