CCC Long Term Plan Update

In our last OVTRK Update we referred to our submission on the Christchurch City Council Long Term Plan (LTP). 

We are pleased to report that this was followed by a request to the OVTRK Organising Group (OG) for a conversation with their Community Governance Unit staff Mary Richardson and Stacey Holborough. That conversation occurred on 29 June and we will follow up. 

Have you already heard that the proposed two per cent cut to community grants in the CCC draft LTP has been dropped? 

What's more, the CCC working party on community funding will consider a proposal to inflation-adjust community funding each year to be consistent with the approach taken with funding for Canterbury Development Corporation and Christchurch and Canterbury Tourism. 

Good news for our Sector!
