Submissions open on Dunedin energy proposal

Dunedin Mayor, Jules Radich, is encouraging the public to have their say on Dunedin City Council’s Aurora Energy proposal.

Public submissions on the proposal are now open and will close at 12 noon on 2 May 2024.

“We are committed to consulting with our community – and Aurora’s customers – on this proposal, and we will be listening carefully to what they have to say, so I encourage everyone to tell us what you think,” said Mayor Radich.

He said there are a range of ways people can find out more information about the proposal, including drop-in sessions before community board meetings in Dunedin, at Council’s Plaza Meeting Room at scheduled times and at the Otago Farmers Market.

The Council is also sending a postcard with key points and a QR code for further information to all Dunedin homes.

A range of other material, including the statement of proposal, will also be available online, in Dunedin cafes and at libraries and council service centres in Dunedin, Queenstown Lakes, and Central Otago districts.

The submission form is available via Council’s website or in hard copy from libraries and council service centres in Dunedin, Central Otago, and Queenstown Lakes.

Public hearings will be held in May 2024 and a final decision is expected in late May or early June 2024.
