Have your say and help shape Taranaki. Your views play an important part in helping the Council shape our plans, policies and programmes. Here are some of the things you can currently share feedback on.
Have your say on transport
We want your feedback on the future of transport in Taranaki.
Your feedback will help us with planning and delivering transport throughout Taranaki now and into the future. It will help us to draft proposals over the next few months that we will then bring back to you later in the year.
Head here(external link) to fill out the survey or make a comment on the interactive map.
The survey includes sections on your vision for transport, your views on road safety and managing speeds, cycling, walking and public transport. You can comment on the same topics on the map plus anything else you want to tell us about.
You can take part between 15 March to 30 April and there is one $200 Prezzy Card up for grabs for one lucky participant.

Let's Kōrero: Essential Freshwater
We're developing a new plan for freshwater in Taranaki as part of the Government's Essential Freshwater reforms.
Key to this is a kōrero with our community on the long-term vision for freshwater and the values our communities care about.
The Natural Resources Plan(external link) for Taranaki will replace the Council's Regional Freshwater Plan and your feedback will guide the targets, limits and rules in the plan that ensure we manage freshwater effectively for the whole community.
As part of this process, we're looking to create six Freshwater Management Units (FMUs) in our region which group together waterbodies of similar type into geographically defined areas. We want feedback on the draft FMUs, the visions that will establish the long-term goals for those units and the values which apply to them.
Natural Resources Plan
The Council intends to combine its freshwater, soil and air quality plans, and Regional Policy Statement into one Natural Resources Plan. This Plan is under development now and will include rules and limits on how soil, freshwater and air are managed.
Feedback from the community is an important part of developing the Natural Resources Plan, and we encourage you to get involved.
We’ll be starting consultation on the Natural Resources Plan in coming months. Watch our website for details about how to get involved.
Join our People’s Panel
We are establishing a People's Panel, which is a quick and easy way to give your feedback and ideas to help make Taranaki a great place to live, work and play.
