Partnership with Māori, reimagining local government, and focused leadership through unprecedented change are three key strategic opportunities identified in a Pre-election report released last week by Central Hawke’s Bay District Council Chief Executive Doug Tate.
In a statement, Mr Tate said successfully addressing these three opportunities is not a job for the faint-hearted. 
He said Elected Members will need a truly collaborative approach and visionary energy to secure our district’s thriving future, with the wellbeing of our people at the centre.
The Pre-election report is a new legal requirement of all councils from this year, with its aim is to provide politically independent information about challenges and opportunities ahead, and to promote informed choices for both voters and those considering standing as candidates.
The report is now available on the Central Hawke's Bay District Council website.
The Tararua District Council has removed water restrictions for the Pahiatua water supply but left alternate day restrictions in place for the Norsewood and Dannevirke townships.
For Pahiatua, the Council says there has been a healthy amount of rain over the past month which has replenished the Mangatainoka River to a point where consistent water is able to be taken.
Norsewood is still using more water than permitted, and continuing issues with Dannevirke’s impounded supply mean restrictions will remain.
Central Hawke’s Bay has begun the week with 150 active cases of COVID-19.
16 of yesterday’s 240 new cases in the region were from CHB.
Hawke’s Bay currently has 2376 active cases, with 30 people in hospital.
Tararua District has 208 active cases.
The MidCentral region has 2466 cases, with 40 people in Palmerston North Hospital.
