Council is preparing the Our Place Lawrence-Tuapeka Community Plan and we will be consulting widely with the public in February-March 2020, attending community events, and holding drop-in sessions. We are also keen to hear from community groups and other stakeholders which operate in the Lawrence-Tuapeka area.
The Community Plan will help determine the projects and priorities for this community, and help put Council's Living and Working and Economic Development strategies into action. The ideas centre on what Council can do with our key facilities and how we can work with the community to make things happen.
We want this Community Plan to act as a catalyst, creating positive flow-on effects throughout Lawrence-Tuapeka and the wider district. We want to strengthen and build community partnerships that will help us all to create positive reasons to live and work in Lawrence-Tuapeka.
Along with the development of the Community Plan, Council will also prepare a Lawrence-Tuapeka Reserves Management Plan (RMP) this year. Comments which relate specifically to local parks, reserves and cemeteries will help to inform this RMP.
