Plantation Heights Subdivision
The 27 hectare residential development is bordered by Johnston Road and McNeill Street and contains a variety of sections, ranging from 433m2 - 7947m2 plus lifestyle blocks ranging from 5018m2 - 3.33ha.
Roads, footpaths, cycle and walkways, including reserve park land, were part of the development and along with great views out to Kaka Point and the Nuggets, make the subdivision an appealing and friendly neighbourhood.
All sites were established with services to their boundaries, including ultra-fast broadband.
The former plantation land was owned by Council and had most recently been used for grazing. The costs of the subdivision project were to be rates neutral.

Why Council developed a subdivision
The subdivision development was a chance for individuals to join in the exciting momentum of growth and it addressed a growing need for accommodation throughout the district.
It addressed the accommodation shortfall that was identified in Balclutha, in a strategic location that is relatively close to the town while offering views and other amenities.
The development is in keeping with the direction set in Council's 10-year Long Term Plan, which provided for us to take a leadership role in driving our district's economy and be proactive about promoting growth.
Council will also be looking at the accommodation shortfall in Milton as part of the Community Plan process, which has started for the Milton, Waihola and Balclutha townships.
