We Asked

Earlier this year we asked you what you thought about our city's parks, playgrounds, river paths and natural areas.  375 people responded.

You Said

We Did

The Parks and Open Spaces Team will use the feedback from the survey along with the Hamilton Play Strategy results received earlier in the year to develop further priorities as part of the Council’s 2021-31 10-Year Plan.

We Asked

In April 2019 to early May 2019 we sought your initial feedback on Draft Plan Change 6 - Regulatory Efficiency and Effectiveness Plan Change. This involved seeking feedback on:

  • the recommendations from the Regulatory Efficiency and Effectiveness Programme (REEP) review proposed to make the District Plan more enabling and workable
  • the correction of a mapping error in relation to the transmission line buffer zone
  • rezoning Council-owned land bordering Waiwhakareke National Heritage Park to reflect the site’s purpose as a reserve.

You Said

We received 22 responses with 182 different feedback points. The feedback included a large amount of support for making the District Plan more enabling and workable. The feedback also included recommendations to incorporate additional changes to the District Plan and amend or correct a wide range of the draft provisions within Plan Change 6.

We Did

Seventeen amendments have been made to Draft Plan Change 6 following the feedback. These include technical corrections and minor amendments to provisions. The matters that were not included either fell outside the scope of Plan Change 6, are being addressed under a separate plan change or need more research and evidence before being incorporated into the District Plan. The next step is for Draft Plan Change 6 to be publicly notified. You will then have the opportunity to formally submit on the proposed changes.

We Asked

The Council asked for public feedback on the draft Hamilton Speed Management Plan which included seven principles and 4 prioritisation areas.

You Said

We received 125 submissions. 80% of the submissions were in favour of the principles and prioritisation process set out in the plan.

We Did

The Council decided on 18 June 2019 to adopt the Hamilton Speed Management Plan 2019. The 2015 Speed management Policy was retired.
