Thames Coromandel Mayor Sandra Goudie updated goings-on in her district with Brian Gentil.

Brian asked Mayor Sandra about one of the items on the agenda for a quarterly report on how her Council is performing at today’s Council meeting.

The Performance Measures Overview Report provides an update to elected members and the public on her organisation’s progress against non-financial performance measures.

This is for Quarter One – which is up to the end of September 2021. The report measures against the 2021-2022 Long Term Plan progress.

The performance measures are looking at things like making sure footpaths and roads are safe;

that stormwater, wastewater and drinking water services protect people and the environment;

and more. Listen to the full interview to hear what Mayor Sandra said.

Brian asked Mayor Sandra about work being done around a Spatial Plan for Thames.

The Plan is called Your Thames, Tomorrow and it sets out the long-term vision for why, where and how the district wants to grow.

The changes being considered will affect Thames township, Moanatairi, Kauaeranga Valley, Totara Valley, Kōpū, Matatoki and Puriri.

Changes include increasing densities in some places, creating new greenfield development zones, and ensuring that there is a good supply of commercial and industrial land to attract new businesses to the area and allow our existing businesses to grow.

Your input at this stage will help to determine how land is used, plus ensuring Thames’ unique identity is protected.

The Spatial Plan is not a statutory document but will inform the District Plan, infrastructure planning and investment decisions.
