HDC Community Outcome: A healthy local economy and a District that is growing.
THT Objective: Sustainable funding that provides facilities, technology, resources and services that deliver social, cultural and economic benefits to Horowhenua Communities.
Prior to the opening of Te Takere THT had a target to raise 15% of its operating budget from sources other than rates. This was the figure determined by HDC as the appropriate private/public split. With the development of Te Takere THT Trust has needed to generate revenue in order to fund demand for services, meet its objectives and achieve the performance measures negotiated with Council each year.
