Council Vision, Mission and Outcomes

Our Council exists to ensure our communities have a good quality of life, both now and in the future. That means that we, as a local authority, not only have to identify what our Council needs, we also must demonstrate how we’ll fulfill those needs.

Our Vision

We will provide quality services and facilities, which are affordable, and delivered with a high standard of customer service.

We will be a good community citizen through our support of community organisations, economic development and the protection of the environment.

The Coromandel Peninsula is a desirable place to live, work and visit.

Our Outcomes

On behalf of the Coromandel Peninsula, we aim to achieve:

  • A prosperous district - the Coromandel Peninsula has a prosperous economy
  • A liveable district - The Coromandel Peninsula is a preferred area of New Zealand in which to live, work and raise a family and have a safe and satisfying life; and
  • A clean and green district - The Coromandel Peninsula's natural environment provides a unique sense of place.

Our Values

Put simply our organisation is about building a community of trust by ‘Being the Best We Can.’ At the core of the way we work, is Being the Best we Can. You will hear our Chief Executive often talk about this. He is passionate about not only what we deliver, but how we deliver!

We can’t achieve our vision and outcomes without having a common purpose and set of values that help guide The Way We Work (click on the poster below to open a larger version).

The Way We Work poster

We do this by empowering people to look at the way we do things by:

  • Doing the right thing – if it feels right then it probably is
  • Creating the right environment – setting the platform that enables everyone to be their best
  • Improving ourselves – everyone making a commitment to ‘Be the Best We Can’
  • Developing a values-based culture

What this means in terms of our Organisational Development is a focus on:

  • Customers and Service – our customer focus philosophy assists us to do the right thing
  • Systems & Planning – our systems and processes create the right environment
  • People & Culture – commitment to and support of personal goals and development – we improve ourselves

And overarching everything is Trust, which is integral to the way we interact within our organization, with our community and with our Community & Partners, the reason we are here.

Our Values are therefore very simple:

Integrity – we are consistent trustworthy and honest in our dealings with self and others

Teamwork – we work together, supporting each other to stay focused and on track

Innovation – we initiate positive change and develop more effective ways of working

Respect – we value others for their contribution
