Seaport Scene Issue 343

What Will the Picton Foreshore Look Like? Have Your Say!

The people of Picton have the opportunity to contribute to the decision on how we would like the foreshore to develop. The Marlborough District Council has created a draft management plan and is asking for submissions.

The creation of a management plan for this area has come as a response to requests for an overall vision to guide development and management of the foreshore reserve area. The reserve management plan process under the Reserves Act 1977 ensures that public consultation is undertaken in all parts of the process. Submissions close on 15 November 2013. Head along to the workshops on 21 and 29 October, 10am and 2pm respectivley. Find the draft document online at

So if you don’t speak now, don’t complain in the future. Have your say!
