INVESTING FOR RESILIENCE AND GROWTH
THE DECISION: We will be increasing our investment in our district’s infrastructure and facilities to respond to the impacts of the pandemic on our community as well as the impacts of growth and climate change. We asked if people thought that investing for resilience and growth is the right approach for Council to take at this time. Out of 382 responses to this question, 307 were in support of this approach but emphasised the need to proceed with care. Council acknowledges that there will be challenges in getting through the level of work outlined in the plan and is gearing up to manage all aspects of what is proposed closely. We are also looking to do some things differently to create efficiencies.
