Long Term Plan 2018-28

What is it

All councils in New Zealand must produce a Long Term Plan (LTP) every three years.  It sets out the 'what, where, when, how and cost' of the all the services, facilities and infrastructure Council plans to provide over the next 10 years.  It is a key planning document.

It also ensures Council is providing for the future in a sustainable way and it gives the community the opportunity to participate in a key decision-making process.

This outlines the key issues and provides some handy summaries. 

Remember, your views will help form our district's direction and providing feedback during the LTP process is one of the best ways to influence Council's thinking. So, it would be great if you took the time to have a say and spread the word amongst your friends and neighbours. Feedback closed 11 May 2018.

Key Issues Summary

The below have been identified as key issues for this LTP:

What a load of rubbish - how should we ramp up services at Mt Cooee landfill?



Milton's main street makeover - to what extent?



Getting it right for roading - should we seal some urban gravel roads?



Where do we draw the line - rating changes for community facilities




Have we got our priorities right for infrastructure?





We're also asking about other issues you might want to have input into including:

  • Destination toilets in Milton and Balclutha

Our Place Waihola Community Plan

We've set a direction to promote living and working in the Clutha District. But, what does that actually mean for Waihola? Keep reading to find out!

Council wants to take the lead and we've got some ideas and options to talk about. They centre on what Council can do with key facilities and areas around the town. We also want to know how we can work with groups and the community to make things happen.

So, we're now seeking feedback on the Our Place Waihola community plan. Consultation will run in conjunction with the Long Term Plan from now until 11 May 2018.

The key issues we want to hear from you are below and you can read the full consultation document here.

  • Addressing Waihola’s infrastructure issues to allow for future growth - including a water pipeline linking Waihola to Milton and upgrading the sewerage treatment plant (these have been included in the Long Term Plan 2018-28).
  • Planning a review of land zoning use in and around Waihola.
  • Improving walking and cycling opportunities – including extending the Clutha Gold Trail from Lawrence to Waihola.
  • Looking at whether we’ve got the right mix of community facilities and if we’re using them in the best way possible?
  • Are we making the most of Waihola’s parks and reserves? For example a number of opportunities to enhance Lake Waihola Destination Park have been identified.
  • Are there any changes that could be made to improve the central part of the Waihola township?
  • You can also check out the Draft Reserve Management Plan for Waihola below, which will tie into the community plan.

Waihola Reserve Management Plan

A Draft Reserve Management Plan has been prepared for Waihola in accordance with the Reserves Act 1977. This covers a 10-year period and helps identify issues, barriers and opportunities for the successful management of green spaces. 

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.
