Draft Annual Plan submissions cover a range of topics
Recycling, tertiary scholarships and stormwater storage are among the potpourri of topics covered in submissions to the Gore District Council's draft Annual Plan.
The Council has received 28 submissions to the 2013/14 draft plan, which is slightly up on previous years. Of that 11 people will present their submissions to councillors at a hearing next Friday (24 May).
Chief executive Stephen Parry said there did not appear to any singular, stand-out issue among the submissions.
Local authorities are going to need longer to process Special Licence applications under alcohol law changes that come into effect next month.
The Gore District Council's Licensing Inspector Frances Shepherd said changes to the Sale and Supply of Alcohol Act 2012 mean that from 18 June all applications for a Special Licence must be lodged at least 20 working days before the event.
