Boundary Adjustment Proposal

The purpose of this notice is to notify the public pursuant to section 16A of the Community Trusts Act 1999 that the trustees of Otago Community Trust (“Trust”) intend to submit a scheme to the Minister of Finance to adjust the boundary of the region within which the Trust provides charitable assistance (“Scheme”).

The Scheme proposes altering the boundary between the region Otago Community Trust operates within and the boundaries of Community Trust South’s region. This change will extend the Community Trust South area to include the portion of the Southland District up to Awarua Point in the north-west and extend the area within Queenstown-Lakes District to include the whole of the Queenstown Ward area. The proposed new boundary will follow the current District and Ward boundaries between Awarua Point and Roaring Meg Creek. Minor adjustments to the boundary will also be made to align it with the current district and ward boundaries.

The proposed adjusted boundary would create the specified area for the Trust as follows:

Waitaki, Central Otago and Dunedin Districts

Queenstown-Lakes District excepting the Queenstown Community area.

Clutha District excepting those parts described as:

  1. The part of the West Otago Ward, west of a line commencing at a point in the Rankle Burn at NZTM 1319150mE 4905174mN; thence north by right line to the south-west corner of Lot B DP 1845 (Otago); thence north-east and north along the south-eastern and eastern boundaries of Block XIV Crookston Survey District to the southeastern corner of Part Section 8 of the said Block XIV; thence north-westerly by right line through Trig O in Block VI Crookston Survey District and the production of that line to its intersection with the northern boundary of Section 57 Block VI Benger Survey District, a point on the northern boundary of the said Ward. And, south of a line commencing at a point in the Pomahaka River, on the north-eastern boundary of the said Ward, at NZTM 1302196mE 4936982mN; thence south-westerly along the middle line of the Pomahaka River to a point at NZTM 1299453mE 4934407mN; thence northerly by right line to a point on the southern boundary of Run 609 at NZTM 1299419mE 4934487mN; thence generally north-westerly along the generally south-western boundary of Run 609 to a point at NZTM 1293370mE 4940085mN; thence due west by right line to its intersection with the western boundary of Clutha District.

Maps showing the proposed boundary adjustment area can be found on our website:

The Scheme does not include any transfer of funds between the two trusts, as the number of usually resident population in the areas being transferred is not significant. An amendment to the Otago Community Trust Trust Deed will be required to give effect to the proposed adjustment.

Following on from initial public consultation already held we invite persons residing within the legislative area of the Trust (persons principally living in the area comprising Waitaki, Central Otago, Dunedin, Queenstown Lakes, Wanaka Ward and Clutha Districts) to make written submissions regarding the proposed boundary adjustment to the trustees of the Trust, submissions must be received by 10.00am on Monday 10 June 2019.
