Selwyn’s community plan — time to have your say

Current location in the site

What do you think about the idea of adding an extension to Selwyn Aquatic Centre to meet the high demand from swimmers?

Should the Council bring in a new way of funding community halls and reserves that helps spread the cost impacts on smaller communities?

Do you support adding more walkways and cycleways to connect townships across Selwyn?

With sports club memberships across Selwyn growing rapidly, is it time to build a multi-purpose indoor courts hub for the district?

Should the Council be thinking about whether chlorination is an option to protect the safety of drinking water supplies in some parts of Selwyn?

These are just some of the questions the Council is currently seeking community input on, through our Long-Term Plan.

Consultation on the plan is now in full swing – and dozens of Selwyn residents have already taken the opportunity to contribute their feedback and ideas through submissions, online surveys or conversations with councillors at community events.

The consultation document, Fast Forward ’28, was released last week, and copies are available at the Council offices or any library and service centre, or online.

Over the next few weeks councillors will continue visiting community events and locations to talk to residents about the plan.

And  Mayor Sam Broughton will be visiting some the district’s favourite cafes to give locals an opportunity to find out more about the Council’s proposals, ask questions and have a chat about what they’d like to see in the next 10 years.

A Cuppa with Sam starts at Darfield Bakery on Thursday. Anyone is welcome to drop in for a chat with the Mayor at one of these locations.

Thursday 12 AprilDarfield Bakery, 9–10.30am; Hororata Café, 11am–12.30pm
