About Community Outcomes

Community outcomes are statements about what our communities wish to achieve, both now and in the future. They form the basis of all our planning for our community.

How were Matamata-Piako’s Community Outcomes developed?

During 2004/05, over 1000 people took the opportunity to have their say on their vision for Matamata-Piako. This consultation involved people from Matamata, Morrinsville, Te Aroha, the rural areas and Māori. It is from these “visions” that the community outcomes were developed for the future of the district. These original community outcomes were used in our 2004-14 and 2009-19 Long Term Council Community Plans (LTCCPs)

In 2010 we reviewed our outcomes to ensure they focussed on areas that Council contributes to, and asked for your feedback on these to ensure they still reflected the community's vision for our community. The new outcomes were adopted and became operative in July 2012.

Matamata-Piako’s Community Outcomes

Our community outcomes are based on six themes that identify the concepts that are most important to our community - you can view them here.

While community outcomes are the responsibility of Council, and form the basis of our planning, they are also something the whole community should work towards, which means that working together and developing partnerships is the key to making progress towards our community's desired vision.
