CLIMATE ACTION PLAN FEEDBACK CLOSES 31ST AUGUST
There are just two weeks remaining to provide your feedback on the draft climate action plan. Do you think it covers everything it needs to?
Make sure you let us know by heading to letstalk.qldc.govt.nz by 31 August to complete the feedback form. If younger members of your household would also like to provide feedback, they can upload pictures, drawings and ideas to the Submit Ideas section of the webpage.
What is the climate action plan?
The draft climate action plan proposes a cross-sector collaborative approach with the community, partners and stakeholders to help the district adapt to, and reduce the effects of, a changing climate.
It sets out what QLDC plans to undertake over the next three years, and also how the different sectors in the district working together will contribute to:
transitioning to a low carbon economy
preparing for the disruptions of a changing climate.
What will happen after the feedback stage?
Community feedback will be assessed and the final plan will be presented to Council. If adopted, the plan will guide decision-making and drive actions going forward - not only for QLDC and the next Ten Year Plan but also for our wider community.

It’s Daffodil Day time of year again…While many of us will probably have blooming daffodils by August, it’s always wonderful to support a good cause like the Cancer Society and get some late August cheer. This year the daffodils are 20 flowers for $20…to be delivered on Monday August 26th.
If you’d like a bunch or two (or ten!) or want to send them to someone as a secret, we’ll be very happy to oblige!
Daffodil Day sales are on from July 26 until August 8.
Please let me know if you’re interested and I’ll be happy to make sure they get to you in August. All of the proceeds go to the local branch of the Cancer Society and help to support care in our own neighbourhood. Last year we raised over $1500.
