Naseby Community Plan

Naseby is located 10 minutes north of Ranfurly. The village lies at the foot of the Mount Ida Range and is on the edge of the Naseby forest. Having being founded in 1863 as part of the gold rush Naseby is renowned for its heritage aspect including gold mining relics and heritage buildings. There is also a wide range of recreational cycling opportunities associated with the forest and the winter sports facilities with the indoor curling rink , outdoor curling/skating rink and natural ice luge.

Naseby has a population of about 120 but in the holiday period this population may increase to about 4,000 people. The village, and its immediate surrounds, is valued for ambience, recreational facilities, services, safe family-friendly community, natural environment, and local heritage and history.

The Naseby community developed their first Community Plan back in 2006; Naseby's third Community Plan is now in the process of being developed.  The draft 2016 Naseby Community Plan is currently available for public review and feedback.  Naseby Vision, the community organisation that steers the actions from Naseby's community plans, will be reviewing and incorporating public comments and feedback into the final Plan.  The close-off for receiving public comment is Monday, 16 May 2016

Some of the key action points recommended within the draft Plan include:
    • Publicise the recent improvement of Naseby’s cell phone and broadband services to help attract new businesses to Naseby and enable existing businesses to capitalize on the improved services;
    • Review current online content about Naseby and collaborate with online and social media providers to achieve a higher profile for Naseby’s attractions;
    • Explore opportunities for greater coordination of the marketing Naseby as a tourism destination;
    • Encourage local businesses to support each other to achieve growth by promoting a shared local identity and encourage new settlers to establish new businesses.
    • Work with the community to develop a local solution to the disposal of green waste;
    • Meet with all landowners (e.g. DOC, CODC, LINZ, and private property owners) to discuss clearing scrub around the town to reduce possible fire risk;
    • Meet with landowners to discuss the feasibility of utilising and promoting the Hogburn sluicings that are visible as an attraction for visitors to Naseby.
