Have your say on plans and strategies

Otago Regional Council wants to hear your views on projects that may affect you. Formal consultation involves you making a submission under a set legal process. Before this formal process, we may seek informal public input on specific projects.

Current consultations

Proposed improvements include:

  • Improved network
  • Consistent frequency

  • Subsidised services

Submissions close on 21 April 2017

Proposed Plan Change 5C Integrated Water Management:  Manuherikia Catchment

Based on your feedback from Consultation 1 and our research, we have developed several options for managing water quantity in the catchment.

We want to share these options with you; find out what you think of them, which option you prefer and the reasons why. 

The second stage of consultation will take place during March. There will be three Drop-in sessions, where you can talk to us in person.
