Current Consultations

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.

Below are the consultations we’re currently undertaking. If you would like to make a submission regarding any of the consultations listed here, please refer to the feedback details provided for each consultation and also have a look at our Submission Guide.

Note: For general feedback, please email us at [email protected] To request a service – use our online Fix it/Report a problem form. If you have something you’d like to share with us, fill out our compliments form or, if you need something fixed, we have a form for that too. You can make a formal complaint here.
