The draft Roxburgh and Teviot Valley 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 business, community and youth surveys, and a community workshop that was held in July. It provides a clear direction for future projects the community would like to achieve in the next three to five years.

Topics range from developing produce and art co-operatives, engaging with youth and assisting them with recreational projects to establishing a local business group, advocating for an ATM and free Wi-Fi, and finding out how to best support the development of trails and walkways in the area, and there are many more.

The Roxburgh and Teviot Valley Community Plan Trust will hear submissions to the draft plan and oversee the actions identified in the plan once it is finalised.

Rebecca Findlay, 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 Roxburgh and the Teviot Valley. This is your chance to have your say.”

Copies are available from the Roxburgh library and service centre, the Ettrick Store, Faigen’s Store at Millers Flat, the Council offices and website –

Submissions close on Monday 17 October.
