Where has the year gone -- Christmas is here already.  On behalf of
the Waikouaiti Coast Community Board I wish to thank all those
volunteers throughout the community who have given their time and
effort to the various projects and events within our area this year.
Please take the time over the holiday period to relax and enjoy the
special places within our area.  We wish everyone a merry Christmas
and a happy and safe New Year.

At our November meeting the board were pleased to confirm financial
assistance from our discretionary fund to the Karitane Special
Projects Group towards their medal presentation ceremony.

The Dunedin City Council has released Dunedin's draft Spatial Plan for
public consultation. The Spatial Plan is an overall strategic document
that will provide the council's vision for the next 30-40 years.  It
will feed into, guide decision making, and provide overall strategic
direction in areas such as water, waste, roading/transport,
recreation, parks and reserves, and the city's District Plan.  As such
it is important that our community make themselves familiar with the
draft Spatial Plan and participate in the consultation process. Copies
of the draft plan will be available at our local libraries, from the
council and through the council's website:
Submissions are scheduled to close on 13 January 2012.

The  Waikouaiti Coast Community Board's next meeting is at 5:30pm on
25 January 2012 in Waitati Hall. 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 either the Waikouaiti or Blueskin libraries or through the
DCC's website at

Members of the board are only too happy to hear (by phone or email)
