Draft New Regional Air Plan

The Regional Council released the Draft New Regional Air Plan on 26 April 2016 for community feedback.

Over the six week feedback period, we ran community workshops and open days in each of the main regional centres (Tauranga, Rotorua, and Whakatāne). We’ve received feedback from the attendees at these events, as well as written comments from about 80 other individuals and organisations.

The Summary of Feedback Report is now available (click here). This report provides a summary of comments received during the consultation period.
