There have been some astounding developments over the last three months, especially considering the speed that things are happening.
- Five meetings later, we are applying for a $20,000 funding, to start the process of preparing a design plan and allowing comprehensive community consultation. We hope to apply for other funding to supplement these funds.
- We understand that at least two further subdivisions are proposed, in addition to the two existing subdivisions. The Franklin District Council staff admit that their figures may be very conservative, given that Patumahoe has not been addressed specifically. Their figures for 2050 are already demonstrably out of date and their long term plan for Patumahoe village is now not appropriate.
- With the Kingseat and Belmont Road approved developments, there could be another 10,000 people on the outskirts of Patumahoe and it's surrounding communities.
- A general meeting will be held to adopt a constitution for the Incorporated Society (formal structure necessary to obtain funding), elect a management committee and prepare the submission for funding to the ARC. There are some tricky little issues to decide such as who should be members of the Village, composition of the managment committee etc.
