Working with the community

Corrections and Cornerstone Infrastructure Partners (CIP) have been working with the local community since the project began. A range of forums have been established to enable community representatives to be a part of key conversations. These include local planning, environment, transport, and construction impact issues.

We are continuing to work with representatives from Ōtorohanga District Council, Waipa District Council, Raukawa and Maniapoto, Iwi and mana whenua, kaumātua, schools, education providers, businesses, non-government organisations, Police, and other government departments.

Ara Poutama Aotearoa has worked with mana whenua to agree names for each of the buildings in the new development.

Local residents, neighbours, businesses, and other interested parties can expect to receive project update information through the life of the project.
