The public can now have their say on New Plymouth District Council's draft annual plan.

The key points of this draft plan are a 2 per cent rates increase, down from a projected 6.6 per cent.

There is a total proposed rate requirement of $71.4 million, which is $4.5m less than forecasted. This will include a $9.1m release from the Perpetual Investment Fund, but does not include any borrowing of funds to offset rates increases.

Submissions can be made online via newplymouthnz.com, in writing, or by delivering it to the NPDC reception. For more information phone 06 759 6060. Submissions close on April 17.

What do you make of New World's Little Shop toys?

I agree with Gareth Morgan, toys are 'brainwashing' kids.

They're harmless fun.

They're educational.

Cunning marketing but not brainwashing.
