Nelson City Council wants to hear feedback from the public on a number of projects.

Three Waters reform

Central Government is proposing reforms in the Three Waters infrastructure space (drinking water, wastewater and stormwater).

As a Council, we will be working to make sure that the best possible outcome is achieved for Nelson, and we will have the opportunity to provide feedback to the Government during this reform process.

It is important that our community understands what the reforms involve. You can view our 31 August Workshop which provides a financial overview, reform summary and Local Government New Zealand insights on the Shape Nelson website.

Our Shape Nelson page also provides the public with Nelson City Council financial data for Three Waters as well as Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs), media releases and links to other helpful information and websites.

We will be holding public meetings on Zoom to explain what we know about the proposed reforms, what the result could be for Nelson and the next steps in the process.

Public meetings

Tuesday 14 September 5:30pm – 7:30pm

Thursday 16 September 5:30pm – 7:30pm

These meetings are subject to COVID-19 Alert Levels allowing meetings to occur.
The meetings will all be live-streamed due to the limited number of participants allowed. We will consider further public meetings if there is sufficient demand.

Parking Strategy

Nelson City Council is developing a parking strategy to help guide how we manage parking into the future.
