Our district is at the Red setting of the new traffic light system (COVID-19 Protection Framework). Council offices and facilities are open. Please wear face coverings and scan in using your NZ COVID-19 Tracer app. Further information about Council's services at the Red setting will be available soon.

COVID Community Response Fund

As part of Council's Recovery Plan, we have made additional funding available to support events and organisations who have been adversely affected by COVID-19.

To be eligible for this funding, you must meet the criteria set out in the Community Ward Grants Policy as well as provide details about how your organisation or project has been impacted by COVID-19. This can be through lost revenue, as your normal funding sources have dried up, or through increased costs associated with the increased demand for your organisation's services resulting from the COVID-19.
