'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 includes the initial development of a draft plan, followed by numerous public consultations and opportunities for the community to give us their feedback, before a final community plan is produced.
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 started with Balclutha, then went on to Waihola, followed by the Milton/Bruce area, The Catlins was next, and our most recent area of consultation has been Lawrence-Tuapeka. As a result we have developed plans for Balclutha, Waihola, Milton, The Catlins and a final plan is currently being worked on for Lawrence-Tuapeka.
We will be consulting with the residents of Kaitangata in 2021 and after that we will continue to work our way around the district.
Once a Community Plan is approved by Council the real work begins and 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.
