'Our Place' Community Planning
Since 2016 the Clutha District Council has been working on developing community plans for the Clutha District. This “Our Place” body of work starts with the initial development of concepts and options which relate to a particular community. These are laid out in a discussion document which is sent to all properties in the area. A series of public consultation events are then arranged, with opportunities for the community to give us their feedback. Once this process has been completed, a final community plan is produced, which describes the specific projects to be undertaken.
It is one of the ways we ask you what you want for your locality, what projects you want us to prioritise, and how you want us to support the community with your own projects.
We have developed plans for Balclutha, Waihola, Milton, The Catlins, Lawrence-Tuapeka and Kaitangata. This summer (2021/22) we will be working with the West Otago community to create their Community Plan.
Once a Community Plan is approved by Council the real work begins and it is not always smooth sailing. Bringing the aspirations of these Community Plans to fruition takes work, and also time. Some of our aspirations detailed in these plans are not quick fixes.
