Media Release re Owaka Reserve Management Plan
Tuesday 19 November 2013
Clutha District Council
is inviting the public to let it know their ideas and visions for reserve
areas in Owaka.
Assets Jules Witt said the call for submissions was the first step
in preparation of a Reserve Management Plan for the township.
plans aim to facilitate the best management of reserve areas by providing
guidelines for the use, enjoyment, maintenance, protection, preservation
and development as appropriate,” Mr Witt said. “The preparation of a plan
involves consultation with the community and there will be more than one
opportunity for the public to have its say.”
Mr Witt said at this
initial stage, Council wanted to hear any ideas people had for reserve
areas in Owaka including the Recreation Reserve (sportsground), Main Rd
playground, Owaka Museum surrounds, Owaka Memorial Community Centre
surrounds, and Owaka Swimming Pool surrounds.
Council would take the
first round of submissions into consideration for the preparation of a
Draft Reserve Management Plan which would then go back out for another
round of public consultation.
“A Reserve Management
Plan will ultimately provide certainty on how these areas are best managed
for the purpose they were set aside, while also taking into account the
present and future needs of the community,” Mr Witt said.
The first round of
submissions close at 5pm on Thursday 19 December, and can be made in
writing to Clutha District Council, PO Box 25, Balclutha 9240; by fax to
03 418 3185; or by emailing

that watering systems and sprinklers may be used during these times, but
should not be left unattended and the occupier must ensure that water is
not being used wastefully.
restrictions are about getting people into the habit of using water
conservatively and hopefully avoiding more severe restrictions if dry
conditions do prevail throughout summer.
It is also
important to note that while many of the district’s water schemes have
plentiful sources, restrictions are required during times of high demand
because the treatment plants and pipe capacity of schemes restrict the
amount of water that can be delivered to consumers.

extent of the dry period, and the time of the year.
