to public meeting
Nearly 200 people attended Clutha District
Council's Balclutha Streetscape Upgrade infor-
mation day and public meeting in the town on
Monday --- and it was a ''positive'' discussion.
The events were arranged to allow the public to
discover more about the $2.6 million project and
share their own ideas, CDC manager district
assets Jules Witt said.
The atmosphere at the meetings had been
positive, he said.
''I think people are pretty supportive of the overall
project as a concept.
''Obviously some members of the public have
specific concerns, for example, relating to
proposed trees and their maintenance, road safety
and visibility, and questions on parking
provision, but that's the purpose of the
consultation and submissions process. We want to
hear people's feedback.''
Mr Witt encouraged interested parties to make a
formal submission to the council before the
closure date next Thursday.
''It's been a valuable process. Now it's a matter of
reviewing the submissions and refining what
we'll be looking to do,'' he said.

Surprise and sadness.
That has been the reaction from
Clutha District Council mayor
Bryan Cadogan on learning of
2013 mayoral election opponent,
deputy mayor Hamish Ander-
son's scathing critique of his
Mr Cadogan first joined the CDC
as its youngest ever councillor
in 1998, and was successfully
elected mayor at the second time
of asking in 2010's four-
candidate race in which Mr
Anderson also stood.
Last week, Mr Anderson
claimed there was widespread
council and public dissatis-
faction with Mayor Cadogan,
arising from a tendency to deal
in ''emotion-driven, headline
''I've been approached by the
majority of current councillors
and actively encouraged to
stand for the mayoralty. The
same encouragement has come
from former councillors and
many members of the public
from across the district,'' Mr
But Mr Cadogan firmly refuted
''Mr Anderson's claims [insinu-
ate] there is a major split and
disharmony in the council.
''In the past three years I have
never been approached by any
councillor with an issue of this
Having talked to councillors last
week, they continued to ''[main-
tain] their professionalism and
neutrality,'' indicating, ''no such
issue exists,'' Mr Cadogan said.
Instead, he was proud of his
personal performance over the
past three years during which
time he said it had been an
honour to represent the district
he loved ''with passion and total
''With projects like the Ready,
Steady, Work zero unemploy-
ment for youth programme,
we've demonstrated a commit-
ment to advancing the prospects
of all our young people and
growing our district from its
base,'' he said.
''And during a challenging time
for New Zealand as a whole,
we've shown fiscal prudence in
moving the district forward at a
pace people can afford.''
Mr Cadogan was excited to have
the chance to seek a further
mandate in the forthcoming
elections in October and con-
tinue the work he'd begun.
''I believe our district deserves
better than this type of politics,
and (I) will do all that is in my
power to remain positive,'' he
