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.

Long-Term Plan 2021-31
This year we’re calling our plan ‘Stepping Up’. That’s because we believe it is time for us all to step up and invest in the future for our mokopuna. Our plan is about boldly moving Masterton/Whakaoriori forward and creating a place that our children, and their children, can be proud of for many years to come.
We are currently consulting on our draft Long-Term Plan 2021-31.
The consultation closes at 4pm, 3 May 2021.
Significance and Engagement Policy
The Masterton District Council (the Council) is committed to the local community being involved in making decisions about things that affect their lives. To do this, we aim to genuinely engage the community in a way that reflects the importance of issues, proposals or decisions being considered. Under the Local Government Act 2002 (LGA), Council is required to develop a policy on significance and engagement. That is, how we determine the importance (significance) of an issue, proposal or decision, and how we go about engaging the community as part of decision-making.
Fees and Charges
We’re reviewing our fees and charges as part of the development of the Masterton District Council’s Long-Term Plan 2021-31, and we’re seeking your feedback on our proposed changes.
Submissions are welcome from any person or organisation who wishes to give feedback.
Submissions close at 4pm on Monday, 3 May 2021.
