A community group is "very disappointed" Parliamentary
Commissioner for the Environment Dr Jan Wright will not
investigate minimum flows set by the Otago Regional Council
for two coastal North Otago waterways.
More than 60 public submissions were received by the Otago
Regional Council by late yesterday on Port Otago's proposed
$100 million channel-deepening project, with more expected by
mail and email over the weekend.
A proposed Otago Regional Council contribution to a vision
for Otago's public transport for the next 30 years lacks a
"clear vision" and acknowledgment of the importance of a
large tertiary campus in Dunedin, councillors say.
