Your views

As part of the planning for growth project we will be engaging with the public at various stages so there will be many opportunities to have your say.

We kicked off the project with our first engagement during April and May of this year, in which we sought feedback on four growth scenarios.  Next we will be asking for feedback on a Draft Spatial Plan which will provide a picture of where our city is heading and how it will look in the future.

Full details of all current, past and future engagements and consultations can be found in this section.
