Waikouaiti Coast Community Board



Natural Hazards Community Consultation
Council is currently consulting with the community (holding community workshops between 24 June and 17 July) on their preferred options for managing the risks of natural hazards in the second generation District Plan (2GP). 

It is appropriate for the council to identify the various hazard zones within our community and to apply controls on these zones. It is, however, important that we as a community provide input into the matters that the council will control and activities allowed in these defined areas.

This is also an opportunity to gain an understanding of the classifications applied and, more importantly, confirm the extent of the boundaries of the areas mapped as being appropriate.

The board is considering the implications of the council's proposed policy for our area and will provide feedback accordingly. However, it is imperative that community members take the time to consider the implications for their property and our area and provide their own feedback through this process. 

The council has arranged for a number of public presentations on their proposed policy. The following meetings have been advised for our area:

  • Waitati Hall 9th Jul 2014 7:00pm - 9:00pm
  • Karitane Hall 15th Jul 2014 7:00pm - 9:00pm

The hazard zones and the proposed controls are able to be viewed through council’s website at;

I urge you all to take the time to participate in this process.

Foot Path and Road Maintenance
The board remain concerned that the level of maintenance carried out on our roads and footpaths is not to an appropriate standard. We welcome comments from our community identifying any outstanding issues.
We also encourage members of our community to report maintenance issues to the council through their customer services department phone: 477 4000. Reporting maintenance items in this way allows the council to track contractor performance.

Copies of DCC documents out for consultation are available from the council and through the council’s website at http://www.dunedin.govt.nz/council-online/currently-consulting-on

The board’s next meeting is at 5.30pm 2 July at the Otaru Room, Civic Centre, The Octagon, Dunedin. The following meeting will be at the events centre in Waikouaiti at 5.30pm on 13 August.  Agendas are generally available through the DCC’s website three days before the meeting through the link below.

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 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.
