One of the things I’m really passionate about is the effects of climate change on people. I’d really like to see some more infrastructure and support systems being put in place before those effects really start to affect people’s lives. Dante, student

Our purpose

We worked with you last year to develop a 10 year plan that invests in Dunedin and looks after what we have. Now the time’s right to update everyone on how we’re tracking and what’s coming up.

preparing for the future

We’ve now got a plan that sets out how the St Clair – St Kilda coast will need to adapt, over time, to the effects of coastal hazards and climate change.

Whakahekerau – Rakiātea Rautaki Tai, St Clair – St Kilda Coastal Plan represents a significant change in the way we look after this valued area. As part of the plan, we’ll be investigating the old Kettle Park landfill and looking to make improvements to beach access at St Clair.

Tunnels Trail

With plans for park and ride facilities south of the city, opening the old railway tunnels between Mosgiel and Dunedin creates the opportunity for a trail that connects the central city to Mosgiel.

The Tunnels Trail would form part of our integrated cycle network, linking Dunedin suburbs, like Mosgiel, to the city centre. This 15km, off-road trail will provide a safe, accessible route, offering people an alternative way to travel and supporting our zero carbon goals.

The trail will also connect to regional cycle networks, starting with the Mosgiel to Waihola route.
