The Central Otago Heritage Trust made a spirited submission to the CODC District Plan last week.
Our approach to heritage is not fit for purpose? I believe that what heritage needs in our region is an annual conference. Perhaps one keynote speaker, but a chance to hear the voices from around about. What are the current issues? What, in fact needs to be done? The area has another major player in the field - the Otago Goldfields Heritage Trust. What does this body say? This group does an awful lot around the place. I do not believe that appointing a co-ordinator is necessarily the way to go. We do need co-ordination, and we always shall. Getting the players together and talking things through. Getting the relevant information, too, would be a really good start, in my view.
The Manuherikia catchment is ‘‘up against environmental limits’’.
