Council received a total of 234 submissions

Summary of feedback received
  • The majority of submitters actually want a mixture of the options.
  • Consistently across all options people want the gullies ‘protected’ – either with covenants or as reserves.
  • There is support for development of the land, but people highlighted the importance of doing it in a staged way, and that upgrades to water and roading infrastructure would be needed.
  • Whatever happens to this land, there is a clear indication from the community that they want to be involved in the process, to make sure any development is sympathetic to the existing environment and community.

All the submissions and the consultation analysis are available to view online.

A staff report will be presented to the Council who will then make the final decision. I will be back in contact when the Council has arranged their meetings for the new year.

If you have any questions, please get in touch with Sam Sharland, Engagement Advisor
