The DCC’s Annual Plan seeks to provide a draft budget for the year ahead, it will determine how much money will be allocated to a number of activities and services the DCC provides for. There are several major projects the DCC has planned for 2019/20, these include a number of works under the Central City Plan and the Penninsula Connection as well as projects regarding public transportation.
Submissions, in support of or opposition to, these projects provide an opportunity for significant and substantial change to the policy that governs the DCC’s response and solutions to environmental issues and the pressures of our changing city. The submissions provide a mandate to our elected councillors as to deliver on key council commitments.
We implore you to make a submission, not only to initiate substantive change within the council but also to temper the negative voices that are disproportionately represented in the processes of change in Dunedin. The DCC has a number of excellent plans that should be supported; this is your opportunity to show such support and represent a more constructive and positive voice in local politics.
