This plan was developed based on the feedback received from various community consultation events in 2023. Councillors took that feedback and are focusing on progressing or investigating projects within the following categories:
Parks and reserves
Sustainable, vibrant communities
Walking and cycling
The Our Place Clutha Valley Community Plan will help determine the projects and priorities for the community, as well as help put Council's Living and Working in Clutha Strategy into action. The ideas centre on what Council can do with our key facilities and how we can work with the community to make things happen.
Council has made it very clear that projects can generally proceed where financially the project is rates neutral, but where a project would be seeking additional Council funding, it would go through a due process for consultation. Council has built into each project, a requirement to consider "easy wins" as a priority.
