Consultation has concluded

ORC is currently consulting on this draft policy, which is proposed to replace the current Significance and Engagement Policy.

The proposed new policy, which has been drafted in partnership with mana whenua, provides an updated framework on when and how we will engage the wider community as part of decision-making processes, and embeds a commitment to partnership with mana whenua.

The Local Government Act 2002 outlines the requirement for every local authority to adopt a Significance and Engagement Policy setting out an approach to identifying the degree of significance attached to issues, proposals, assets, decisions, and activities and providing clarity about how and when communities can expect to be engaged in decisions.

Feedback on the draft is invited. You can find it under the 'Documents' heading.

Anyone can make a submission. Submissions close Monday 16 August 2021, at 5pm.

Hearings will follow during the week of 30 August 2021.

Submissions can also be made by email to customerservices@orc.govt.nz. Or, if you would prefer to have a hard copy of the draft, and submit via a paper form, please call our customer experience team on 0800474082.
