We want to hear your thoughts on how you think family, friends and visitors should be welcomed into town. Traditionally, Masterton District Council has planted bright bedding plants in the traffic islands approaching the roundabouts at both the northern and southern ends of town.
This summer we’ve opted not to replant the bedding plants going into summer after assessing the costs involved and risks the plants would suffer during water restrictions; we couldn’t guarantee the ability to water the plants, given it would require as much as 100 baths full of water every week.
Instead, we’re taking the opportunity to have a conversation about what longer-term alternatives there may be. Should we replant with permanent plants or even introduce public art?
