Community development is the process of helping a community strengthen itself and develop towards its full potential.
Throughout Central Otago there are many community groups, organisations, individuals, businesses and government bodies working tirelessly to build thriving communities and a healthy environment while striving to maintain their own sense of uniqueness and identity.
There are many community groups throughout Central Otago working tirelessly on projects that have come from our Community Plans. Here are just some of the amazing efforts of our community to work towards the collecitve community vision of their special areas.
Community planning is about obtaining local peoples views on their area. It involves local people identifying what is important for their area, what are the points of difference and creating a vision of the future for that community. From this vision, the community can identify actions to be carried out to achieve it.
