• unding request of $2,900 from the Mercury Bay Museum for a virtual reality education application was approved by their local community board. This allows the museum to make 3D scans of items in the museum collection deemed too precious or fragile to be displayed within the museum building.

• ouncil Structure Review – complete a survey. TCDC is reviewing how our local communities are represented. This is called a Representation Review and it will come into effect for our October 2025 local body elections.

TCDC is keen to hear from our communities to understand how you feel about some key parts of Council’s structure.

The review does not revisit the decision to establish Māori Wards.This review survey will help us to understand how our communities feel about key aspects of our current representation structure.

Your feedback will help to inform our proposal, which will go out for formal consultation later this year. The survey will be open until Sunday March 31 2024.

Everyone who completes the survey will go in the draw to win one of two $100 Prezzy Cards.

Next week, you will also be able to pick up a hard copy from our Council offices, District Libraries, or download one here.
