Our vision / Tō Mātou Tauākī Moemoeā

Our home, our future

Our vision captures our reason for getting out of the bed in the morning. It’s our team’s purpose.

To us ‘our home, our future’ means that we’re proud to live here and we want our future generations to be proud to live here too. We want to work with you to help shape our future rather than waiting for things to happen. That means creating opportunities for the now and also for future generations. We are ready to push boundaries to make things happen.


Tō tātou rohe kāinga, Tō tatou ao tūroa

Ka hopukina tō mātou tauākī moemoeā te tino pūtake ka ara ake i te moenga ia ata. Ko tēnei tō mātou pūtake mō te tima.

Ki a mātou ‘Tō tātou rohe kāinga, Tō tatou ao tūroa’ ka noho whakahī tahi tatou i tēnei wā, a tērā wā hoki o ā tātou uri whakatupu. Ko tō mātou hiahia kia mahi ngātahi tātou ka whakaritea tō mātou ao ki mua, ka tatari kē kia tutuki.
Ka whakaritehia ngā āheinga ināianei, āpōpō hoki mō ngā uri whakatupu. Kua reri mātou kia panahia ngā ripa tauārai ēnei āhuatanga.

Community Outcomes

Our community outcomes express in more detail what we’d like to see happen in our District. These outcomes continue to stay at the forefront of the decisions we make. We developed these community outcomes after speaking to our community about what they love about our District, and what they want to see in the future.
