Thames Coromandel Update with Mayor Sandra Goudie

Posted May 12, 2020
Council Matters

Brian Gentil spoke with Thames Coromandel Mayor Sandra Goudie as we prepare to progressively move from Covid-19 Alert Level 3 to 2 in just a few days and asked what that would mean for the council.

Sandra said they were working through libraries, pools, playgrounds and service centres with more information published on their website before Thursday.

Mayor Goudie explained one major change that will be implemented when regular curbside collections resume is that they’ll only take plastic types 1 and 2 in wheelie bins and at their Refuse Transfer Stations.

Thames Coromandel Council is running several on line forums you’re invited to join. These include hospitality, building and construction and others.

It was mentioned recently there‘s been an increase in data usage over the past 4 to 6 weeks, a 35 per cent lift in demand; Brian asked Sandra what the state of Ultra Fast Broadband is in the district.

And there’s another council meeting online this morning.
Mayor Sandra covered some of the topics that will be discussed, including around their Shoreline Management Plans and setting up coastal panels around the district to help inform how TCDC manages aspects of their coastline.

They’ll be discussing the viability of having an Indoor Emergency Alerting Device available to households around the district to send out civil defence warnings and they’ll be talking about the potential for land use and development around the Thames Ward.
