AVA I want you (1)

Your views on a SHA for Retirement Village to QLDC please

As you may know there is a proposal to establish a retirement village on the south side of McDonnell Road adjacent to the Hills golf course. Details are available here: www.arrowtownretirement.co.nz   The Developer has now proposed to QLDC that this development be designated a Special Housing Area under QLDC's accord with the Government.   This would remove the development from under the Resource Management Act and place it under the Housing Accords and Special Housing Areas Act which has different rules for public consultation and approval by QLDC   The Council will be considering this proposal on 26th November and would like to receive your views on or before 24th November   The Developers Expression of Interest for a SHA is available here and the web page contains a link to a feedback form for you to submit your views to QLDC    www.qldc.govt.nz/your-council/your-views/arrowtown-special-housing-area

Hi, and welcome to the Arrowtown Village Association website – we aim to be the voice of the Arrowtown community. 

As well as initiating new projects the AVA works with the community and statutory authorities to improve the outcomes for the Arrowtown community and environment. 

The Arrowtown Village Association has completed many projects throughout the town and within its area, such as the first walking bridge over the Arrow River, the second walking bridge over the Arrow River, the Feehly Hill Restoration Project, the Security Camera Project and the Senior Net Project to name just a few.

We are an entirely voluntary run organisation with around 200 members but the more members we have, the stronger and more representative of the community we are.   All members have the right to vote at our annual AGM- if you’re interested in becoming a member, here is the Membership Form.

Our monthly committee meeting is held on the fourth Thursday of each month at the Athenaeum Hall.   We welcome members of the Arrowtown Village Association to our meetings.   

Your views and and opinion are actively sought, the Arrowtown Village Association is the collective voice of the Arrowtown people.  It is the role of the AVA committee to represent that voice, particularly when a majority opinion is made known.  This is irrespective of the views or interests of the individual committee members.

We look forward to continuing to act on behalf of our fellow Arrowtowners.

Our Mission Statement: The Arrowtown Village Association shall strive to be an excellent example of community action working in an energetic, co-operative and organised manner for the benefit of all residents, businesses and the village as a whole.
