The draft Clyde Community Plan is now out for community feedback. Having accomplished a great deal since its first community plan developed in 2006, the community decided to re-evaluate its vision and future direction.

The draft document has pulled together the feedback from the business and community surveys, and community workshop that was held in October. It provides a clear direction for future projects the community would like to achieve in the next three to five years.

Topics range from exploring the best place for a village green, establish a local business association, produce a local newsletter, advocate for an ATM, options to address the volume of trucks and traffic going through the centre of town, find out what heritage improvements the community wants, and there are many more.

A number of residents have already volunteered to be part of the Clyde Community Plan Steering Group. Their task will be to hear submissions to the draft plan and oversee the actions identified in the plan once it is finalised.

Mathew Begg, Council’s Community Development Manager said the group welcomes feedback on the draft plan “The more submissions they get will help give them a good steer as to whether this draft reflects the community’s views and aspirations for Clyde.”

Copies are available from the local shops, Council office or library, the Promote Dunstan website or Council website –

Submissions close on Monday 21 February.
