Our Place Catlins took a positive step forward at the Council meeting last week, with Councillors agreeing to adopt the Our Place Catlins Community Plan.
Following community consultation Councillors last year made some decisions about potential project groupings and areas to follow up. The adopted plan contains a range of projects under the umbrella areas of:
a. Our changing communities
b. Landscape and the environment
c. Parks and reserves
e. Freedom Camping
f. Planning for the effects of climate change
Consultation showed the Catlins community wanted a strong focus on the environment, on active recreation and on community facilities.
The mix of projects in the plan sees some that will be led by Council, others will be driven by Clutha Development, and others are opportunities for community involvement.
The final plan will shortly be available on Council website under Publications > Plans > Community Plans
