Lovers of Lake Dunstan are being asked to make their feelings known as the next stage of consultation on the lakes’ future is under way.
Children from Cromwell Primary School gave back to the neighbourhood on Thursday by joining community organisations and businesses in planting native trees beside Lake Dunstan.
A bay at Lowburn that’s home to a gigantic floating water park during summer will remain sectioned off year-round.
An inflatable fence hundreds of metres long has been left behind after the Kiwi Water Park deflated its business for the season at the end of March.
Fresh water dolphins, commercialisation of the lake, invasive weeds and growing islands of silt –locals of Lake Dunstan – young and old - have pooled a myriad of aspirations and concerns about the lake as a community plan on its future starts to take shape.
Now, an online voting platform has been launched to determine which of the many Lake Dunstan issues and potential outcomes have the most support by the most people, so the community’s priorities for action can be nice and clear for decision makers.
