Historic Iona Church set for stage three restoration
The Historic Iona Church Restoration Trust were awarded a $150,000 grant last week from the latest round of grants from the Otago Community Trust.
Community Trust South and Otago Community Trust are proposing an alteration to their common boundary, which is the northern boundary of Community Trust South.
This boundary adjustment 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.
Community Trust South and Otago Community Trust do not propose any transfer of funds between the two Trust’s in relation to the proposed boundary adjustment.
The specified area of a Trust is the geographic area within which the Trust can make grants. The specified areas of each Trust were set when the Trusts were established in 1988 and were reflective of the operating area of each of the predecessor Trustee Savings Banks at that time.
To better understand the proposed boundary adjustment please have a look at the maps here.
We are currently consulting with the affected community and invite people to attend one of these public meetings to discuss the proposed boundary adjustment.
