Saturday 12 September, 9am-1pm at the Hill Street Farmers Market, Thorndon
On Saturday 12th September there will now be two opportunities to engage with WCC officers.
Besides the pop-up scheduled for Thorndon there will be a brief one, 90 minutes at Te Papa : Level 4, 12:00pm to 1:30pm

The draft Spatial Plan suggests potential significant changes for parts (or all) of Thorndon e.g.
proposed change from Inner Residential to Central Area District Plan zone.
