Our Place: Balclutha, Milton and Waihola

We've set a direction to promote living and working in the Clutha District. But, what does that actually mean?

We're calling the plans "Our Place" and they will help determine the projects and priorities for each community, as well as help put Council's Living and Working and Economic Development Strategies into action. We've got some ideas we want to talk about. They centre on what Council can do with our key facilities and how we can work with the community to make things happen.  We want to know what you think of them and what've missed.

Balclutha: Feedback on Our Place Balclutha (the community plan for Balclutha) has closed. Check out the latest on the Our Place Balclutha Community Plan webpage.

Waihola: We're still working away on the information for Waihola, so watch this space.

Milton:  We're currently seeking feedback on Our Place Milton, so keep reading!


"If you care about Milton and want to help shape a brighter future for generations to come, then please get involved in this process. Have you ever thought 'there's a better way to do this' or 'wow, we do that well, I'd hate to see it disappear'? If so, then now is the time to have your say. Like many of you, I have aspirations of how our district's towns can look, both now and into the future. So, I can't stress enough the importance of what we're trying to achieve here. Council is conscious of the cost to ratepayers, but also aware of the cost of doing nothing. It's time we talked about our vision and priorities for our community, listened to others and believed that, collectively, we can make a difference." - Bryan Cadogan, Mayor

Re-zoning of Balclutha and Milton

Under our District Plan, we're also looking at the residential and industrial zoning areas of Balclutha and Milton - find out more about that and how to have your say on our zoning review page.

Outstanding Natural Landscapes Review

The Clutha District Council is in the initial stages of reviewing the Outstanding Natural Landscapes in the district as part of our District Plan review.  The Council has identified areas in the district as having opportunities for an outstanding natural landscape classification in the District Plan. We want to ensure that areas of outstanding natural landscapes are appropriately managed.  Find out more and have you say here.

Reserve Management Plans

Draft Reserve Management Plans have been prepared for Balclutha, Milton and Waihola in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977. These draft plans cover a 10-year period and help identify the issues, barriers and opportunities for the successful management of these green spaces. This is a formal consultation process, so see the Reserve Management Plans and make a formal submission here. Remember, this is separate from the general feedback you may have provided about our parks and reserves as part of the Our Place community planning process.

Please note the submissions on the Balclutha Reserve Management Plan closed on 27 February 2017.  The Milton and Waihola plans are still open for submissions until 14 July 2017.
