Thanks for being part of Waipa’s story for the next 10 years.
Consultation on our plans for the next 10 years has now closed. It was great to hear from so many of you - all up we received more than 640 submissions on this website alone!
Our Mayor and councillors are now looking through the submissions and on 8 and 9 May, will hear from all of you who wanted to speak to your feedback in person.
Our story for the next 10 years will be finalised on 26 June. We will publish all of the decisions right here so stay tuned.
So What’s the story for Waipa? You sure told us!
Planning for the next 10 years isn't something that starts today. It starts by taking a step back and looking deep into our past to find out who we are and where we have come from.
Our story for the next 10 years is gearing up to be an exciting one.
This website outlines the key issues we are looking at over the next 10 years that we want your feedback on. It doesn't include every project, but it gives you an overview of projects or issues that have a significant cost, have high community interest or are different from what we said we would do in our last 10-Year Plan.
This feedback will then help the Mayor and councillors make their final decisions.
So, what’s the story? You tell us!
If you can't find the property you're after, give us a call on 0800 WAIPA DC.
Please note: The figures do not include water charges which will be billed separately from 1 July 2018.

We are looking at an annual average rates increase of 2.23 per cent over the next 10 years. That's including covering the costs of water. As of 1 July 2018, you will be charged for water separately. If we took away that charge, the average annual rates increase would be 1.53 per cent.

Over the next few weeks, we'll be hitting the road to talk to you about our story for the next 10 years.
Make sure you come and say hi and let us know what you think.
