Have Your Say

Tell us what you think...

The three Eastern Waikato Councils, Hauraki, Matamata-Piako and Thames-Coromandel, have joined together to produce a Draft Waste Management and Minimisation Plan (WMMP). Now we want to hear what you think.

This website gives a brief outline of what the plan covers, but we encourage you to find out more about our proposed plans and to have your say.

For more information go to the WMMP project page.


Proposed Easter Trading Policy

Central Government has recently given Matamata-Piako District Council the power to determine if shops in its district can open on Easter Sunday. This doesn’t mean they have to open but lets them open if they want to. It’s also important to note that employees cannot be forced to work on Easter Sunday if the shop chooses to open.
