WAIKOUAITI COAST COMMUNITY BOARD

by Gerard Collings, WCCB chair

It is pleasing to see that the Blueskin Library extension is now a reality with work scheduled to commence in October, to be completed in April next year.  All those who have been involved in bringing this project to fruition can be particularly proud of their efforts.  I would also like to extend a thank you to our Dunedin City Council (DCC) councillors for honouring their commitment to this project in somewhat difficult fiscal times.
The Waikouaiti Coast Community Board (WCCB) will be considering its options for public toilets in Waitati at our 26 September meeting.
As a result of necessary redesigning, physical works on Careys Creek bridge have been delayed.  It is now expected that the works will be finished closer to Christmas rather than early November as previously advised.
The WCCB has recently made a submission on the DCC's draft Social Wellbeing Strategy and the Otago Regional Council's Regional Passenger Transport Plan 2012. Copies of the board's submissions are attached to our September meeting agenda which is able to be viewed as indicated below.
Copies of DCC documents out for consultation are available from the council office and through its website http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-online/currently-consulting-on
 The next meeting of the WCCB is at 5.30pm, 7 November 2012, at the Warrington Surf Life Saving Club.  Members of the public are welcome to speak at the board's public forum, however those wishing to do so need to advise Wendy Collard, 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 http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/your-council/council-minutes .  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.
