Part of Masterton District Council’s role is to enable democratic local decision-making in the local community – it means we set the strategic direction for the district in partnership with the local community. To do that we often need to hear your thoughts on key projects or potential changes we’re considering.

Easter Sunday Trading Policy
Should we continue to allow shop trading on Easter Sunday?
We are reviewing the Easter Sunday Shop Trading Policy (the Policy), which currently allows all shops in Masterton/ Whakaoriori to trade on Easter Sunday if they wish to. We are now inviting community feedback on whether we should continue, change, or revoke the Policy. Consultation is open from 10 November until 12 December 2022.
Wairarapa Combined District Plan
It’s time to review!
District Plans must be reviewed and updated every 10 years. The existing Wairarapa Combined District Plan is now 10 years old and due for review and renewal. The review of the Wairarapa Combined District Plan is an opportunity to influence how the Council controls land use and subdivision in the District. Consultation is open from 25 October until 6 December 2022.
