The Welcoming Plan is a key part of the Welcoming Communities programme in Palmerston North. It sets out what the community will do to make our city welcoming to newcomers.
For the purpose of the document and the wider programme, "newcomers" is defined as migrants who have lived in New Zealand for up to five years, former refugees, and international students.
The Welcoming Communities programme is also expected to benefit New Zealanders relocating to Palmerston North.
