Waikouaiti Coast Community Board

By Gerard Collings, chairperson, Waikouaiti Coast Community Board

The Board is currently considering setting up an email service to keep
community groups and members of our community informed about meetings,
consultation etc. If you would like to be added to the contact list
please advise either Geraldine Tait or Andy Barratt.

In response to the request from our Board, the Council has agreed to
set up a working party to investigate the proposed scenic route
through our area, Port Chalmers and the Peninsula.

Staff have provided comment on their investigations into the traffic
issues raised by members of the public in the vicinity of Bay and Bank
Road, Warrington. At our 25 May meeting the Board considered
recommendations to upgrade the existing chevron signs to include a
15km/hr advisory speed and a suggestion to restrict parking near the
corner to improve visibility. In addition to the recommendation staff
have programmed for completion by 30 June 2011 improvements to the
water table on Bank Road to resolve existing scouring issues.

The Council is currently consulting on its Draft Revised Development
Policy. Development contributions are charges paid by developers to
meet the increased demand that new properties add to services such as
water and wastewater, roads, reserves and community facilities.
Developments which place additional demand on Council infrastructure
could attract extra charges under the proposed policy. A copy of the
proposed policy is available from the Council and through the
Council's website
http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-online/currently-consulting-on.
Submissions close 5pm 7 July 2011.

The Council is also currently consulting on its Road Naming Policy
submissions which close 5pm 10 June 2011.
Following our 25 May meeting at Waitati Hall, our next scheduled
meeting will be at 5.30pm 6 July 2011 in the Otaru Room, Civic
Centre, The Octagon, Dunedin. (Access is through the Customer Service
Centre.)
Members of the public wishing to speak at the public forum need to
advise Jane Hinkley, our governance support officer, (phone 474 3374)
before 12 noon on the day prior to the meeting.

Remember you can view the Board's meeting agendas, reports and minutes
at the Blueskin and Waikouaiti Libraries or through the DCC's website

Members of the Board are only too happy to hear (by phone or email)
from members of the community about any issues within our area.
