Wellington North Planning ‘Growth Meetings’

A Wellington North councillor wants ratepayers to be better informed about rapid population growth expected in the next 20 years.

Wellington North is working on a Community Growth Plan that will help the community decide how it wants to handle the expected population boom.

Council went along with Steve McCabe’s suggestion for the first public meeting to be in Arthur later this month, and one in Mount Forest at a later date.

Wellington North Mayor Andy Lennox has already been bringing the message to a number of community groups.
