10-Year Plan submission form

Consultation open from 14 April until 14 May.

He aha rā ngā whainga matua? What really matters?

We want to know what you think of our ideas for achieving the city vision: He iti rā, he iti pounamu. Small city benefits, big city ambition.

We're asking you to provide feedback on the proposed 10-Year Plan under each goal heading. The more detail you provide to explain your views, the better we will understand what really matters to you.

Please work your way through the submission form and answer as many questions as you want to. There is space at the end to add any general comments you wish to make, and a file upload button.

If you fill in the online form we will automatically email you a copy of your submission for your records. However, with a form this long it can be a good idea to first write your answers in a Word document and copy them across. We'd hate for you to lose them to a technical glitch.

Prefer to fill in a paper form? Download it from the bottom of this page, or ask us to post you one.

We all have a responsibility to respond to climate change. Our goal is for Palmerston North to decrease carbon emissions and improve our environment.

Goal 5: A driven and enabling council

To achieve the city vision, we need a council organisation that can deliver on all our strategic goals. We have already made some important steps towards supporting our city’s growth and prosperity by doing things more simply. We will continue to design and deliver our services in more effective ways to improve relationships and learn from experience. We will work in partnership with our communities to enable growth and change. We will ensure community voices are reflected in everything we do.
