Welcome to the Opotiki District Council

The submission period for our Draft 2015-25 Long Term Plan has now closed.

Thank you to everyone who made a submission.

Council will hold a hearings and deliberation meeting on 28 May.  Changes to the draft plan resulting from submissions will be made before the final plan goes to an Extra Ordinary Meeting of Council on 30 June for adoption.

Opotiki District is made up of miles of coastline, clean fast running rivers, vast areas of native bush and farmland. The people of the district live in a number of communities scattered along the coast. Each community has a strong and distinctive spirit and an inherent appreciation of the area in which they live. This forms the basis of the solid and determined collective community in which the Opotiki District Council works.

The district is identified as Opotiki Coast by Nature in recognition of the distinctive characteristics of the people and their affinity to the natural environment.
