In February 2018 Council adopted the My Masterton Our People, Our Land Strategy: He Hiringa Tangata, He Hiringa Whenua following consultation with our community.
He Hiringa Tangata, He Hiringa Whenua was developed to sit alongside Council’s Financial and Infrastructure strategies to fill a strategic gap that was identified when it came to our community.
The Strategy sets out Council’s long-term strategic direction for Masterton/Whakaoriori across four key focus areas: Social Development, Cultural Development, Environmental Development, and Economic Development.
It also shaped the community outcomes in the 2018-28 Long Term Plan which align with the vision statements of He Hiringa Tangata, He Hiringa Whenua (in addition to an infrastructure community outcome), guiding Council’s contribution towards improving the wellbeing of our residents and communities.
An initial Implementation Plan (2018-2021) has been adopted to achieve the vision statements identified in He Hiringa Tangata, He Hiringa Whenua.
