Council wants your view on our ‘heritage stories’

We are updating the Heritage Policy 2008 and we want to hear from you.

“The draft Heritage Policy – Taonga Tuku Iho – reflects community engagement carried out last year and we want to check our approach is on the right track,” says Hutt City Council’s Director of Environment & Sustainability Helen Oram.

“Come visit us at one of the open days or go online and complete a survey and share your ideas and stories. There will be at least nine open days to be held at locations around the city over the next month and there’s the opportunity to set up your own open day or workshop, with council support,” she says.

“Taonga Tuku Iho is a high-level strategic direction of how Council will support the City’s communities’ aspirations to value, protect, celebrate and conserve heritage in Lower Hutt in all its forms.

The draft Heritage Policy builds on engagement completed in early 2019, which featured open days at Hutt City Libraries, community meetings, a Citizen’s Panel survey, and online engagement.
