The main construction contract was awarded to SouthRoads for a tender price of $2.55 million and will include work such as road construction, laying water, sewer and storm-water pipes, as well as landscaping. 

There are additional items associated with the project such as other road construction work, pump station construction , power supply and telecommunications, which are not part of the main construction contract, but will be happening at the site in the coming months.

The total cost of the project is expected to be approximately $5.7 million.

Work officially started at the site with a sod-turning ceremony on 31 October.  

​The surveying and development company Terramark is project managing the subdivision development of behalf of Council.

A public competition to name the subdivision, along with its streets and reserves has resulted in the following names:

​Winning Name:​Suggested by:
​Subdivison ​Plantation Heights​Carolynne Stephens & Diane White.
​Street 1​Oregon Place​Carolynne Stephens
​Street 2​Monterey Drive​Clutha Development
​Street 3​Cypress Lane​Carolynne & Ken Stephens
​Reserve 1​Lancewood Reserve​Ken Stephens
​Reserve 2​Manuka Park​ Ken Stephens

These names were chosen by councillors following the competition and reflect the subdivision's history as a former plantation site.

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. ​
