YOUTH IN­VOLVE­MENT

Northern Outlook - - YOUR LOCAL NEWS -

10-year-old Olive Roxburgh felt so strongly about the Hu­runui District Coun­cil’s draft Cop­pard Re­serve Man­age­ment Plan that she de­cided to present her own sub­mis­sion to the coun­cil’s public ser­vices com­mit­tee. Olive told the com­mit­tee the re­serve should re­main as a nat­u­ral area and there was an op­por­tu­nity for a Lei­th­field his­tory walk, which could be­gin at the re­serve and in­clude nar­ra­tive boards. As a re­sult of the sub­mis­sion the com­mit­tee has now rec­om­mended that coun­cil amend the draft plan to in­clude the pro­vi­sion for a nar­ra­tive board.
