Waikouaiti Coast Community Board (column)

Waikouaiti Coast Community Board

Community Plan

The 2009-2010 Community Plan for our area has been finalised and can
be viewed at any of the DCC libraries, or on the Dunedin City Council
website www.dunedin.govt.nz. In it you will find details of various
projects being considered by the Board, together with details of
upcoming roading and footpath improvements. (Please note that roading
work programmed for completion in this 2008-09 year is not included in
the 2009-10 plan).

Community Clean-up Days

The Mega Skips will be placed at Warrington Domain on the following
dates in 2009: 24th & 25th January; 23rd & 24th May; 26th & 27th
September.

Public toilets

The Board has been giving some thought to the concept of a public
toilet facility in Waitati. We would welcome your views on this. Is it
needed? Where could it be located?

Blueskin Bay Library Expansion

The project team has been making good progress on this and there
should be an updated plan and model available for viewing at the
library in early February. One consequence of enlarging the library is
the necessity to relocate the playground. We would welcome any
comments or suggestions you might have regarding this.

Fluoridation of water supplies

You will no doubt have read that the Dunedin City Council voted, by a
majority, not to undertake public consultation regarding this issue.
The Board has expressed its disappointment to the DCC and has asked
Council to reconsider undertaking meaningful consultation.

Campervan Effluent Dump Site

It is pleasing to note that the dump site has now been relocated at
Warrington Domain, well clear of the playground area.

Funding Opportunity for Road Safety and Sustainable Travel Activities

Funding is available for one-off projects or programmes of up to three
years duration from 1st July 2009 to 30th June 2012. Details can be
obtained from the Community Road Safety Advisors at the DCC :-
Henriette Rawlings henriette.rawlings@dcc.govt.nz or Bridget Smaill
bridget.smaill@dcc.govt.nz

Our next meeting is on Wednesday 28th January in Waitati Hall,
commencing at 5.30 pm, and you are most welcome to attend. If you
would like to speak at the public forum at the start of the meeting
please contact Lynne Robins on 477 4000 at least a couple of days in
advance to make arrangements.

Please feel free to contact any of your Board members with any issues,
comments, concerns or suggestions you may have.
