Our Place Kaitangata Community Plan
We've set a direction to promote living and working in the Clutha District. But what does that actually mean for Kaitangata?
The Our Place Kaitangata Community Plan summarises the projects and the aims of the community plan, and is a useful reference for people wanting to know more.
This plan was developed based on the feedback received from various community consultation events in 2021. Councillors took that feedback and are focusing on progressing or investigating projects within the following categories:
- River access
- Walking and cycling
- Kaitangata Pool
- Victoria Park Reserve
- War Memorial Reserve
- Public toilets
- Wangaloa Domain Reserve
The Our Place Kaitangata 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.
