Northland: Our Place, Our Future
Safe and healthy residents and a strong regional identity are among eight ‘Regional Community Outcomes’ intended to guide Northland forward as part of Long Term Council Community Plans (LTCCP).
The Northland Regional Council, Northland’s three District Councils and research company ACNielsen have been working with more than 50 Northland organisations and hundreds of residents in recent months to identify Regional Community Outcomes.
Regional Community Outcomes are part of the LTCCP process and describe what Northlanders value and what they would like the region to be like in the future.
Though not binding, these outcomes are intended to guide the planning processes of Northland’s local authorities and other organisations.
Northland’s Regional Community Outcomes are that:
- Northland residents are safe and healthy
- The region’s infrastructure is developed in a sustainable way
- Northland’s natural environment is sustainably managed
- The region is prosperous
- Our residents are educated and skilled
- We have cohesive communities
- Northland retains and enhances its regional identity
- The region’s residents have access to recreational and leisure opportunities
