Help Improve Access To Signal Hill - Dunedin

Postby HamishS on Tue 10/Apr/12 1:06pm

Over the past 18 years Mountainbiking Otago have been building tracks on Signal Hill. Presently you cannot access the bottom of the hill without crossing through Logan Park High School. We have made a submission to the Dunedin City Councils 2012-2013 Annual Plan asking the DCC to build a road and carpark on land behind the school that it has recently purchased. This will ensure that we have permanent independent access to the tracks on Signal Hill – a really important stepping stone to further developing the facilities up there.

All the detail is covered in our Submission to DCC Annual Plan Our case will be a LOT stronger if there are lots of submissions asking for the same thing (basically it’s a numbers game). You don’t need to spend any time on it – just cut and paste the following:

I’d like the council to develop a road and carpark on the land that it has purchased behind Logan Park High School to enable independent public access to the bottom of Signal Hill Recreation Reserve.

Go to the DCC online submission form and make the submission before 5pm on the 17th April. This is only a week away so best do it now. Please ask your biking mates to do the same. When we last made a submission about this in 2010 it was the 3rd most popular topic and that made a huge difference.

If there is anything else that you feel strongly about, then please make a personal submission. For more information about the submission process please go to the DCC webpage dealing with the submission process We will be making additional submissions asking for water supplies at Wakari, Leith Valley, Signal Hill, and also for toilets at Wakari and Signal Hill.

If you have any questions please contact me at or on 027 442 6474. Thanks. Hamish
