Subdivision Named

Clutha District Council Media Release

New name for North Balclutha Subdivision

The North Balclutha subdivision received an official new name at today’s Council meeting.

The Council development will now be known as Plantation Heights.

This reflects the fact that the subdivision land was a former forestry block.

Council agreed to spend some more time thinking about street and reserve names and to make a final decision about those at the Council meeting on 6 October.

The names up for debate were the result of a naming competition, which saw members of the public suggest names and the reasons behind them.

Twenty-two entries were received overall, made up of 34 subdivision name suggestions, 57 street names and 32 reserve land names.

A number of clear themes were identified including forestry, Maori names, place names, Scottish heritage and local history.

Council Chief Executive Steve Hill commended the entrants for the calibre of the names suggested and the thought that had been put in to them.

Council is pleased with the positive interest in and progress of the 27-hectare residential development, which is bordered by Johnston Road and McNeill Street and will have a variety of residential and lifestyle sections.

Competition winners and prizes won't be announced until after the 6 October Council meeting.
