Waikouaiti Coast Community Board

By Gerard Collings, Chairperson

Happy New Year to you all. I trust the festive season treated you well and that you are refreshed and ready for any challenges the new year may bring.

The Waitati Hall committee have requested the removal of the bottle bank from the Waitati Hall car park. They have a particular issue with the amount of refuse being left beside the bottle bank. The Board will consider this issue at our January meeting.

DCC have started this year's annual plan process and are currently considering the draft annual plan for public consultation.  At this stage DCC expect to issue the 2013/14 draft Annual Plan for public consultation at the beginning of March with submissions scheduled to close early April.  The specific details of how DCC will consult are yet to be finalised. I will advise the specific details in the March issue, however I strongly urge you all to take the time to make yourself familiar with its content and participate in the consultation process.
I was disappointed to hear of a number of instances of littering in and around reserves over the Christmas period. I can assure you DCC parks staff take this issue very seriously. If you see instances of this occurring please don't hesitate to contact the DCC directly.

Copies of DCC documents out for consultation are available from Council and through Council's website http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-online/currently-consulting-on
The Board's next meeting is at 5.30pm, 30 January 2013 at the Karitane Hall. Our following meeting will be at 5.30pm, 13 March at the Waitati Hall.
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 4743374), 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 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.
