Councillor Peter Bentley moved a Notice of Motion, which was seconded by Councillor Raj Kumar, to “call for an independent review of Rotorua District Council”.
The high level framework had been shared with some key stakeholders and partners and there would be further and wider engagement and consultation in future.
In an update to the Operations & Monitoring Committee today, council’s Deputy Chief Executive District Development Jean-Paul Gaston, outlined the process that was underway, explaining there were several key pieces of work that needed to be completed before a proposed plan could be developed.
These included working with mana whenua and Te Arawa on cultural foundations and working on an incentives policy to encourage commercial and residential development in the inner city.

There was no specific timeframe around the foundational work as it was important to take the time to “get it right”, Mr Gaston said.
Contracts are also in place with four Rotorua-based social service agencies to provide support services and a physical hub is to be established to deliver these services.
The committee was updated on the work of the housing taskforce that is a collaboration between Council, Central Government agencies, Te Arawa and local social agencies, dealing in the first instance with changes to the management of emergency housing and progressing towards more social housing for Rotorua.

Bold Flavours has been fully renovated and is presented in pristine condition with a clean, crisp décor. The fully stainless steel kitchen is packed with new, top brand plant and equipment of every conceivable kind, with the current owner making everything on the menu, on site – including fabulous bakery goods – and also offering a take-away menu.
Bold Flavours Café & Restaurant is situated on the very high profile corner of Amohau and Tutanekai streets, with easy on-street parking on both streets.
This is very much a pure turn-key purchase – there is not another dollar needed to spend on décor or equipment. It really is a case of making money from day one!
The owner is reluctant to sell after setting up such a quality business, and already establishing goodwill, but personal reasons dictate his move. This is a spectacularly well-presented restaurant with extensive quality chattels and a great menu – you must see the high-quality fit-out to appreciate the true value of this business.
