Happy New Year to all, we hope the festive season treated you well.

The Waikouaiti Coast Community Board has set up a new group email
address: Emails sent to this address will be
directed to all board members collectively.

The Dunedin City Council (DCC) is in the process of finalising its new
2012–2022 Long Term Plan (LTP). Public consultation on the LTP is
scheduled to commence in March. We encourage members of the community
to participate in this process.

At the board's request, DCC staff in conjunction with the Department
of Internal Affairs and the Otago Community Trust have organised a
funding seminar for community groups within our area, to be held at
the East Otago Events Centre at 7:00pm on Wednesday 8 February 2012.
It is hoped that the seminar will provide helpful advice to groups
thinking of projects requiring funding assistance.

Copies of DCC documents out for consultation are available from the
council office and through the DCC website
