Changes to Grants Policy

Amy Wharram from South Wairarapa District Council

We’ve made some changes to our Grants Policy

We want to give more certainty to community groups for activities that align well with our community outcomes and from next financial year propose to enter into partnership arrangements for multi-year or operational funding.

This will also make it clear the amount of grant budget that has been allocated to such arrangements and how much contestable funds remain for other applications.

Other changes to the policy include amendments to the eligibility and assessment criteria so that we can support those causes most important to us and bringing Community Board and Māori Standing Committee grants together under the one policy.

Water restrictions eased across the region

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Wellington’s sprinkler ban has been lifted– but with sporadic rain forecast for winter residents still need to avoid wasting water.
The restrictions were put in place for the Hutt Valley, South Wairarapa, Wellington city and Porirua in mid-February as water usage soared during the summer months.
From Tuesday, residents in Lower Hutt, Porirua and Wellington city can again use sprinklers and irrigation systems, Wellington Water said. In Upper Hutt and South Wairarapa people can do so every second day, as is usual.
Most of the Wellington region’s drinking water comes from rivers and the Waiwhetu aquifer under the Hutt Valley. River levels fell to 90 per cent before the sprinkler ban.
Meanwhile, people in the Wairarapa town of Carterton still have to boil their water after E. coli bacteria was found in the water supply on March 12.
