Heading for three year plan


If you make a submission via a survey or hardcopy submission form, you have the option of ticking a box to speak to your submission. Hearings will be held on 22 and 23 May 2024.

We’ll contact you about the dates and process. Please remember to include your name and contact details. When you make an oral presentation, we will document your name and the key elements of your presentation.

Important things to know when you make a submission

Central Hawke’s Bay District Council will use the collected information to:

  • identify your submission and your supporting oral presentation (if you make one).
  • make your submission and documented oral presentation publicly available (see below).
  • prepare a Council report that includes aggregated analysis of submissions and may include a demographic summary.
  • contact you to:
    • clarify any aspect of your submission or oral presentation.
    • arrange an oral presentation in support of your submission, if you request this.
    • advise you of the decision(s) on the 2024-2027 Three Year Plan.

Central Hawke’s Bay District Council treats all submissions received through its public consultation processes as public information. As such, we:

  • may be required to release all or part of your submission, and our documentation of your oral presentation, if a request is made under the Local Government Official Information and Meetings Act 1987.
  • will consider removing your personal contact details from any publicly available copy of your submission if you request this removal in your submission.
  • may choose to publish submissions, including on the Central Hawke’s Bay District Council website, in full or as a summary. Your contact details will be excluded from website publication.

We will only use the information provided to us:

  • for the purposes we collect that information (see above).
  • for other reasons, permitted by the Privacy Act 2020 (e.g. with your consent, for a directly related purpose, or where the law permits or requires this use).
