Raglan Naturally Strategic Plan

Throughout 2021, the Raglan Naturally Board worked on planning to create a path forward for the community plan. From this process, Raglan Naturally have chosen two Focus Areas for 2022 being Te Oranga o te Hapori / Community Wellbeing and Kāwanatanga ā-Hāpori me te Whakatakoto Tikanga / Local Government & Planning. Projects have stemmed from community aspirations and projects in these areas of the RN Community Plan 2020.
