What is a submission and how you can make one?
A submission is a way that you can have a say on council’s current consultations. You can make an individual submission, a submission on behalf of a group, or a joint submission.
Submissions that aren’t related to a District Plan change or a notified Resource Consent (for example, submissions to Council’s Long Term Plan or proposed policy changes) do not require a form as given below.
Your submission can be made by email and in writing. Please make sure your contact details are sent along with your submission if you wish to speak to a committee under public comment, or be updated on decisions and meeting times.
You can also make a submission online. Go here to download or view any submissions made. Please note that not all submissions will be available until consultation has closed.
