Each year the Council undertakes a survey of residents to test the adequacy of the District’s roads and footpaths and community and leisure facilities.  It is part of the audited performance framework.

Council has commissioned Versus Research to carry out this survey.  A sample of residents of the Rangitikei have been randomly selected from the ratepayer database.

If you received one of our surveys, please fill it out and return it in the Freepost envelope provided by Versus Research. All answers provided are held in complete privacy; any comments made will remain completely confidential.

The survey is also available below for anyone to complete online, it will take less than 10 minutes

Local Approved Products Policy 2014

E-mail Print PDF

The Psychoactive Substances Act 2013 became operative in July 2013 and established a regulatory framework for the legal sale of licensed products (“legal highs”). As part of this legislation territorial authorities are able to implement a Local Approved Products Policy.  The legislation does not permit Council’s policy to ban the sale of products from within the District. However, it does allow Council to restrict where the sale of products may take place. This includes identifying “sensitive sites” and specifying a minimum separation distance between sensitive sites and retail premises, and between two retail premises.
