Public to have say on coastal reserves
By Chris Morris
Members of the public have until mid-January* to have their say on a new management plan for coastal reserves around Dunedin. Dunedin City Council staff have identified 11 coastal reserves across the city – including at Brighton, Karitane, Long Beach, Ocean View, Waikouaiti and Warrington – to be reclassified under the council’s draft coastal dune reserve management plan.
*There is no way the closing date for submissions would be mid-January.
DCC will need to correct press statements in accordance with its website information.
The Dunedin City Council website entry says:
