ORC Meetings on Project Benefits

Following feedback from Taieri ratepayers on the fairness of scheme funding in this year’s Long-Term Plan, Otago Regional Council (ORC) has agreed to review the public versus private benefit of the four flood protection and drainage schemes in the Taieri and Lower Clutha catchments.

The review is being done by independent economic consultants Castalia, of Wellington. Part of the review process involves holding two public sessions next week, where interested people can have their say on the benefit of the schemes.

ORC director corporate services Nick Donnelly said that those attending the drop-in sessions will receive a hard copy of the survey.

Both sessions are on Wednesday 11 November, starting in Balclutha at the South Otago Town and Country Club from 11am to 2pm, and later at the West Taieri Memorial Hall in Outram from 7pm to 9.30pm.
