It is now time to put pressure on our elected representatives to make sure they give your submission due consideration.
I do not think it was included in the NPDC Long Term submission form but do you agree with the Council spending another 11 million dollars on the Pink Palace. Essential work perhaps if properly estimated and approved by the full Council.
Do you think this extra 11 million should be spent?

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.

Thanks Christina of the Daily News. Good article in paper this morning. Your efforts are appreciated. Thought you portrayed a reasonably balanced approach and some telling comments although there appear to have been some good ones you have missed. One Councillor being happy to use 13 times the average amount of water used by the general population if he does that 2-3 times a week that would double or triple total. Is it any wonder Councillors and probablyis not a good look. Shows some Councillors and staff have little sense of reality or democracy. I note also that another Councillor said only costs would be charged but he forgot we would be paying for it all beforehand anyway. One lady mentioned individual storage as an option. Something I mentioned in my submission. My 400 litre tanks enables me to water my fruit trees and veges regularly in all but the driest spell. There has also been some mention of the Council's preemption of water issue. They for example have surveyed most houses to see where meters would be installed; advertised for a manager (withdrawn in haste when it became politically sensitive) and say they are ready to go in July. What a waste of time.
Please note NPDC has still failed to supply transcript of of 10 year Plan hearings as promised. I will keep reminding them. Today all 4 people involved were not available. What does that tell you.
They had a vision for their property, but they also had three floods in 20 years. That didn't stop them pursuing the garden of their dreams though.
