Community Engagement and Partnerships

The Carterton District Council partners with many community organisations, and is committed to a community-led approach to developing community strengths and assets, and responding to issues that adversely affect the community.  The Council recognises that people are the most important asset in our community, and seeks to empower them to participate in building a resilient, healthy, safe community.

Community Engagement Groups

The Community Services Team regularly consults with Community Engagement Groups to seek advice and guidance, particularly on issues that affect minority groups such as youth, seniors, disabled persons, and Māori.  If you are interested in being part of a Community Engagement Group, please contact Gerry Brooking, Community Development Coordinator, Ph 06 379 4083 or email gerry@cdc.govt.nz.
